(April 20, 2011) — Paul Chen, a R. TCMP, in behalf of QACTMA, officially made three requests to Jason Kenney, Minister for Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, concerning interests of BC acupuncturists and welfare of alternative medicine seeker. Although Kenney did not give answers to these requests, he acknowledged that Chinese Medicine has became an important alternative medicine for many Canadians today. He would like to see Health Care includes Chinese Medicine as part of the system.

Kenney understands that the needs of alternative medicine is on a rapid growth. Herbal products are a booming business. Since the authority may not know the nature of the herbal products, many Naturalpathic practitioners and the alternative medicine businesses are concerned about the availability of getting the regulated and quality supplies.

Kenney also points out that we are not to overlook the needs of Traditional Chinese Medicine especially to Chinese immigrants' well being.

針灸改革聯盟提3要求未獲康尼正面回應

卑詩省中醫針灸改革聯盟代表,陳昶仁中醫師,向前來溫哥華助選的聯邦公民移民及多元文化部長康尼(Jason Kenney)提出三項要求。
雖然未獲康尼即時正面回答,他表示很多加拿大人都依賴傳統中醫,他個人也希望希望衛生部制訂醫療護理及管制政策時,把中醫也包括在諮詢者範圍內。
康尼又說,傳統中醫藥不斷發展,已成龐大醫療產業,中醫師或藥店擔心管制機構或未全面認識中醫及草藥性質,而令他們無法取得所需藥物。
康尼還表示,不能忽視傳統中醫對本國國民,特別是亞裔人士健康的重要。
