How to cut Canada's approval time for new drugs while improving safety
Troy Media
New medicines are a central component of modern medical care, treating illness effectively, providing more comfortable treatment regimes, extending life and reducing disability, and sometimes offering new treatment options where none previously existed.

Head of Quebec order of nurses: Cutting nursing jobs is short-sighted
Montreal Gazette
Slashing nursing jobs is nothing if not short-sighted, says the head of the Quebec order of nurses. Having fewer nurses on hand has a negative effect on patients, Lucie Tremblay said during a break at the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec's annual meeting, whose theme this year is improving care and patient safety. Tremblay's comments come in the wake of more cuts being announced at the McGill University Health Centre.
