I have posted the full video as I know many from the ALS Community are interested.
For my friends and family, make sure to watch MP Francis Drouin (at minute 37). He is the Chair of the All-Party ALS Caucus. Travis and I were fortunate enough to attend one of the meetings and we are so grateful to all who participate.
It was quite an honour to get a shout-out from Parliament. It is a day I will not forget!
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Text of the Motion
That, in light of the death of over 1000 Canadians each year, including the tragic loss of the Honourable Mauril Bélanger, former MP for Ottawa—Vanier on August 16, 2016, as a consequence of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), the House: (a) reiterate its desire and commitment to, in collaboration with provincial and territorial stakeholders, combat ALS via research and awareness; and (b) call upon the government to increase funding for ALS research, and to substantially increase national efforts to develop and launch a comprehensive strategy to assist with the eradication of ALS at the earliest opportunity.
