Victoria , BC Nov. 3 -- BC MLAs and ministers had an opportunity Nov. 3 to learn how cancer research is working from TFRI-BC Node Regional Advisory Committee members and invited speakers. The politicians attended an awareness and information session in Victoria, hosted by the RAC, with chair Simon Sutcliffe as moderator. Speakers included Victor Ling, Darrell Fox, Simon Sutcliffe, Marco Marra, Janessa Laskin, and Patrick Sullivan.

Over 30 MLAs, including 9 ministers, attended. The two-hour session included a thoughtful question-and-answer period. Several MLAs remarked on the value of the evening and on the excellence of the presenters and talks, specifically how helpful it was to hear stories that help to illustrate the challenges and successes in cancer research. It was the first such meeting held by the BC-RAC.
