Green leader pushes bill to deal with Lyme disease
Nova Scotia, Feb 26th, 2014, New Glasgow News,
On Monday Bill C-442, which first received first reading in June 2012, will finally appear for second reading in Parliament.
If it passes, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May believes it could improve how Lyme disease is dealt with throughout Canada.
If it does, Canadians will have New Glasgow’s Brenda Sterling-Goodwin to thank.
May, who ran against Peter MacKay in the 2008 election while living in New Glasgow, said she had never heard about Lyme disease or the devastating effects it can have on people’s lives until she met Sterling-Goodwin.
