New Brunswick Southwest MP Karen Ludwig is fulfilling a campaign promise to bring national attention to Lyme disease as she prepares to co-chair a national all-party round table next week.
Ludwig says she couldn’t ignore the problem after going door–to–door and talking with voters.
“I was very surprised at the number of people that talked about Lyme disease across the riding and how it was impacting them, their families and their jobs,” Ludwig told Information Morning Moncton.
“And so I made a commitment … that if I got elected I would take it on.”
