HWC Minister Perrin Beatty and DM Maureen Law appear before Health Committee. Ottawa: House of Commons; 1989.
MP Bruce Halliday suggests HWC Gweneth Gowanlock update herself about sensitivities.; 1991.
Halliday, a former Ontario family physician of the year, invited testimony as Chair of the health and, later, human rights committees of Parliament. He enabled good work at Health and Welfare, by Chronic Disease Epidemiologist John Davies, who knew a bit about the history of persons with sensitivities. Gowanlock, on the other hand, seemed unable to differentiate between the long recognized health complaint and the sometimes flaky ideas of doctors of environmental medicine. More than 8,000 Canadians with undiagnosed CNS sensitivities have suicided since Gowanlock's involvement in the issue, first as an assistant in Jake Epp's office, then as Director of the Mental Health Division.
