Petitition to Minister Leona Aglukkaq

My friend Shelley has asked for our help to get 10,000 signatures for the following petition:
The Liberation Treatment is potentially a ground breaking discovery for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis. In November 2009, Italian researcher Dr. Paolo Zamboni, made headlines worldwide with his study of  chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI). The MS community responded with great hope, excitement and a call for immediate action.   Unfortunately, on Tuesday August 31 2010 the Canadian government decided not to fund a clinical trial of the Liberation Treatment in Canada.  As a Canadian citizen and once a supporter of the MS society, I wish to express my interest in seeing our country act as a leader in helping find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.  This is an alternative therapy, that has inspired hundreds of thousands of people afflicted with the disease, all of whom deserve the opportunity to pursue that hope.
Go to if you wish to sign the petition.  I signed it with a comment indicating that I believed the decision was based upon a poor recommendation from "experts" with no knowledge of CCSVI, many of whom have conflicts of interest.
