Dr. LaFontaine. I know you have your work cut out for you to try to repair the Canadian healthcare system that has gone off the rails. Another important issue is availability to important chemotherapy drugs such as temozolomide to everyone in all provinces - as quickly as possible. As you know, quick access to these drugs is a matter of life and death. Best of luck to you and your team. D. Manning
