Motions regarding Lyme Disease

On November 19th, 2013, Mr Hillier introduced two motions to the House to better the way Ontario deals with Lyme Disease. The motions can be found in the House Order Paper here. The motions read as follows:

52. Mr. Hillier — That, in the opinion of this House, to ensure that Lyme disease and Chronic Lyme disease are diagnosed and treated with more effectiveness, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care should examine the diagnosis regimen of jurisdictions that are experiencing a higher success rate for diagnoses. Filed November 19, 2013.

53. Mr. Hillier — That, in the opinion of this House, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario should recognize the impact of Chronic Lyme disease on people in Ontario and free physicians to use their best judgment in treating patients with Chronic Lyme disease, including the prescribing of a regimen of antibiotic treatment beyond the current recommended guidelines without fear of reprimand. Filed November 19, 2013.
