Mr. Peter Adams (Peterborough, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, I would like to present another petition. It is from hundreds of women who are concerned about standards of mammography quality assurance in Canada.
They point out that Canada has the second highest incidence of breast cancer in the world. While the United States has mandatory mammography testing and standards, Canada has no legislation for mandatory mammography quality assurance standards. They call upon parliament to establish an independent governing body to develop, implement and enforce uniform and mandatory mammography quality assurance.
