Mr. Speaker, November is Diabetes Awareness Month in Canada.
Earlier this week, I attended the Canadian screening of The Human Trial, a Hollywood documentary by a Canadian filmmaker, Lisa Hepner, on the incredible work of researchers to find the cure for diabetes.
Canada is not only the birthplace of insulin, but Canadian researchers also discovered stem cells, islet cells and developed the Edmonton protocol.
Canadians living with diabetes know that we are united in our support for them as we supported Bill C‑237, which established the national framework for diabetes.
Next week on November 14, I will be proud to host the third annual World Diabetes Day flag-raising ceremony in my city of Brampton. I invite all residents to join me.
Let us continue to combat diabetes together.
