Alberta committee to probe MS procedures

It will be interesting to see what kinds of experts will be on this committee: http://www.edmontonsun.com/news/alberta/2010/08/16/15043201.html... and I hope the whole process doesn't just end up being a delaying tactic.

I still see no movement at all in the Atlantic provinces, though... in fact, I heard a rumour that health professionals with expertise in CCSVI have had inquiries and requests for training from all parts of the country EXCEPT the Maritimes.  Now I know that there are a lot of innovative people (including some in the health sector) in this part of the country, so what is it about the health system here that nobody in it seems to be even expressing interest in this issue?

  1. I have unsuccessfully been trying to get someone here in Atlantic Canada interested, and there are many people out this way getting treated abroad. I have heard that there is a neurologist (Dr. Hoppe?) who is very pro CCSVI, but as one vascular specialist said - no one around here uses the words "centre of excellence" in creating health policy.
