Canadian Conservative MP Leon Benoit gave an update on September 23rd 2011 of what he had been doing in the summer months, just in time for parliament season.
He said that as the House of Commons was about to resume for another busy season, he wanted to inform Canadians on what he had been doing over the previous few months.
Benoit mentioned that since parliament had recessed at the end of June, he had met many people at different events in his constituency, the electoral district Vegreville—Wainwright. He said he had been working on issues such as CCSVI treatment for MS, various agriculture issues and property rights issues. In addition he said he hosted an international NATO PA meeting to promote the sustainable development of the oil sands and shale gas.
The MP said that for some time he has been meeting a local group of constituents and some individuals to discuss issues related to multiple sclerosis. In summer 2011 he said he talked to people with MS and their families about CCSVI treatment, “a procedure to unblock veins in MS patients”. Benoit did not go into very much detail about the kind of progress he has made over the last few months, although what he did say sounded positive for MS sufferers.
“Our government is currently initiating clinical trials in Canada. I have been speaking with the minister of health and her staff on ways that we can speed up information gathering so better treatment can be made available in Alberta.”
Angeles hospital in Mexico offers CCSVI treatment and has helped many patients significantly reduce their MS symptoms. For further information please contact us using the form on the right.
