Simon Kennedy

Health committee  Yes, but by order in council, now the first nations and Inuit health branch is actually no longer the responsibility of Health Canada, and I'm no longer the deputy head responsible for the organization.

Health committee  That would be a question probably better put to parliamentary officials than to bureaucratic officials. What I can say is that we're doing a lot of work to get ready for the eventual deployment of regulations once the bill passes. I would say that I could give assurance to the me
