"Mr. Chairman, at the last review of the Paragraph 6 system in October 2010, there was an exchange of questions. In response, Canada would like to update Members on Bill C-393, which sought to amend Canada’s Access to Medicines Regime. This Bill died on the Order Paper at the end of the last parliamentary session before the May 2011 general federal elections. No similar bill has yet been introduced in the new session of Parliament."
