Less talk... more rock

In the true spirit of Conservatism, Stephen Harper is providing more funding and less government interference... in the fight against cancer.

“In the cancer community, this is like a new bill of rights,” said Pat Kelly, national program director of the Campaign to Control Cancer, a coalition of 55 of Canada's leading cancer organizations.

The new strategy, which has a $260-million budget for five years, will operate at arm's length from the federal government but report each year to the federal Health Ministry.
This strategy will have significant benefits for a huge number of Canadians.
Cancer's toll is significant: An estimated 153,100 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer this year and 70,400 will die of it, according to Canadian Cancer Society figures.

There are people over this side of the world who've been posting about both Steven Harper and John Howard. Personally, I see them as hopes for the world.
