Health Canada official cites ‘confidential’ agreements when asked how many pediatric meds coming into Canada

Linsey Hollett, the director-general of the Health Product Compliance department at Health Canada refused on Tuesday to share with a parliamentary committee how many pediatric medication shipments from the U.S. and Australia are coming into Canada. She said due to “confidential agreements” with partners she can’t share numbers but assured the committee of a “fair and equitable” distribution.
