Thank you, Madam Chair, and welcome to all our witnesses.
I know we have very little time. There seems to have been a theme that's cropped up at all our meetings, and that is that there seems to be a lack of federal leadership by our current government on a variety of these important goals and objectives in the 10-year plan. One, in particular, is the national pharmaceutical strategy.
Ms. Smadu, we can't seem to get information on this. What's happening? We don't know if there's a co-chair of the intergovernmental body. What do you think is hindering this process? This appears to be typical of why we're not achieving a lot of these goals quickly enough.
So I'd like to ask you that and give everyone an opportunity, briefly, to put forth recommendations for our committee's report on the plan to strengthen health care.

I would just ask you specifically, is there a federal partner? Do you have a federal presence in this particular case of the national pharmaceutical strategy, for example?

Yes. What's happening with that? We can't seem to get that information.

Is there a co-chair, and if so, who?
Mr. McBane?

You're saying, essentially, that the government is implying that they support the accord, but in fact are not doing so, in many instances.

Do you have some general recommendations for the committee on what you believe would help to strengthen health care for Canadians, for our committee report?

And it would also cut down on adverse drug reactions—

—which is something this committee has been examining in another study as well.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Welcome, Minister.
It certainly is the federal responsibility to work with the provinces to ensure there is surge capacity in the event of a pandemic, yet I'm not seeing anything in the estimates that would help hospitals cope with the demand for beds and care in the event of one, or to build the pressure rooms they would require.
Could you please explain how your plan you referred to before for pandemic preparedness addresses the matter of surge capacity in Canadian hospitals? As I'm sure you're aware, in Ontario Dr. McGeer, of Mount Sinai, and others in Calgary, etc., have raised serious concerns about the lack of surge capacity.

Thank you.
If I have a little more time, Mr. Chair, I'd like to know the expiration date of the Tamiflu stockpile that was purchased by the government in 2006 and what the contingency is after that expires.

Finally, we heard testimony from the last witness that we're not anywhere near reaching our goal in terms of electronic health records. I think it's at 5%. We're trying to reach a goal of 50% by 2010, if I'm not mistaken. How are we going to reach that goal? I know our government had begun that process. You have added somewhat to it--modestly. But we're well below the goal.
It's such an important driver of improving Canadians' health and the health care system. Everyone is doing that globally. How can we expedite this? I believe more steps should be taken. I don't think we're going to reach that goal if we don't. What are your plans to do that?

Thank you, Madam Chair, and thank you to our guests today.
We've heard through today's hearings, as well as previously in other sessions, regarding the need for more financial resources. Are there other impediments to achieving improvements in the 10-year health care plan to improve the health and safety of Canadians? Is it financial? Is there enough commitment from the federal government currently to achieve these goals? We have continuously heard of the need for a pan-Canadian strategy. We have also heard the concern that it's not there to the extent that it was originally, and that it has been weakened. There was $42 billion. There was great promise.
I would be very interested to know what you feel will get us there and what your recommendations would be to this committee.
