As to what that specifically means, I'm not quite sure just yet. The official text of the motion states; "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."
I am so encouraged by this vote. You may ask "why wouldn't anyone support a commitment to eradicating ALS?", however, it is never easy asking the Federal Government to commit to substantial (I mean substantial for ALS, not necessarily the Federal Budget) funding! I am so proud to be Canadian and so grateful for the perseverance of all those who fight to combat this disease.
