Today there was a non-partisan press conference discussing how the draft framework can be improved
and CPAC has the digital archive of the event. http://www.cpac.ca/en/digital-archives/
Currently, each province or territory controls health matters so each one may have different Lyme
protocols. Some Canadians that suspect or believe they have contracted Lyme disease may
find it hard to get diagnosed and obtain treatment. Sometimes, going to the United States for
medical care is chosen in order to expedite care if the provincial or territorial health ministry
do not offer timely assistance or care.
The federal government is also in the news for two aviation related items:
1) the government has put new secret security measures in place

2) there will be a proposal to create a Canadian passenger bill of rights as current there is no national policy
on how passengers are to be treated uniformly across airlines in situations of being bumped from flights
and any compensation or protocols to be offered or followed.
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scot ... -1.4065426"In Canada, unfortunately, we don't have an air passenger bill of rights. So it goes airline to airline and each airline does whatever it wants, subject only to scrutiny by the Canadian Transportation Agency," said Lukacs.
However, the federal government said Monday it will introduce new legislation this spring that will address the problem of travellers being bumped from flights. An air passenger bill of rights was promised last fall to establish clear, minimum requirements for compensation when flights are oversold or luggage is lost.
