A Progressive Conservative MPP is calling for a provincial all-party committee to look at the treatment of rare diseases. Michael Harris says people who suffer from rare diseases have endless hurdles, from getting a correct diagnosis in the first place, to specialist referrals, to medication and out-of-country treatment. He will be introducing a private member's motion in the new year to strike a committee to tour the province, hearing from experts and people with rare diseases in order to develop a comprehensive strategy. (Health Minister Eric Hoskins applauded Harris for his advocacy on behalf of rare disease sufferers, but wouldn't say yet if the Liberal government will be supporting Harris' motion.)
