Conservatives vote against a National Dementia Strategy
NDP MP Claude Gravelle sponsored bill C-356, which outlined a National Dementia Strategy. The bill broadly addressed five main points: research, community care, home care, training for care-givers, and training for doctors.
At Health Minister Rona Ambrose's request, MP Gravelle added/deleted/modified the bill to satisfy the governing party. Then Health Minister Ambrose, and her party, voted against it anyway.
