    Jason KenneyMarking the birth and life of the Buddha, Vesak is the holiest of days in the Buddhist calendar. While the date of Vesak and the form of celebrations vary from country to country, Buddhists across the globe are united by its message of compassion, kindness, joy and equanimity. In all traditions it is a time when families and communities come together in the spirit of prayer, celebration, and helping those in need. Vesak’s emphasis on compassionate practice is particularly evident this year as we see people from Canada and around the world joining forces to provide food, shelter, and assistance to those affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal, Which also severely damaged many Buddhist holy sites. Canadians have responded generously to the call for help and Canada will continue to stand with the people of Nepal as they begin to recover and rebuild. As Minister of Multiculturalism, I send my best wishes to all those celebrating Vesak today and over the next few weeks. Vesak, qui souligne la naissance et la vie de Bouddha, est le plus saint des jours dans le calendrier bouddhiste. Même si la date de Vesak et ses célébrations varient d’un pays à l’autre, les bouddhistes de partout dans le monde sont unis par son message de compassion, de bonté, de joie et de sérénité. Dans toutes les traditions, il s’agit d’un moment où les familles et les collectivités se rassemblent pour prier, célébrer et aider les personnes dans le besoin. L’importance qu’accorde Vesak à la pratique de la compassion est particulièrement manifeste cette année, alors que des gens du Canada et de partout ailleurs joignent leurs forces pour fournir de la nourriture, un abri et de l’aide aux personnes touchées par le séisme qui a sévi récemment au Népal et qui a gravement endommagé de nombreux lieux sacrés pour les bouddhistes. Les Canadiens ont répondu généreusement à l’appel d’aide qui a été lancé et le Canada continuera de soutenir les gens du Népal qui commencent seulement à se remettre de cette terrible tragédie et à rebâtir leur pays. En ma qualité de ministre du Multiculturalisme, j’offre tous mes vœux aux personnes qui célèbrent Vesak aujourd’hui et au cours des prochaines semaines.

    Rona AmbroseToday I hosted a productive symposium on prescription drug abuse in Edmonton. Following the symposium, I announced federal funding to increase the number of annual pharmacy inspections carried out by Health Canada. Working with pharmacies across the country, this will help to ensure the safe handling, storage and security of prescription drugs in Canada, and reduce opportunities for the diversion of prescription drugs for illegal sale and use. Our Government has made it a priority to fight prescription drug abuse, and we are investing heavily in a range of initiatives to address this issue. Our team of inspectors will be working in cooperation with pharmacies across the country to track, report, and monitor the movement of prescription drugs which will ultimately help ensure they are being used for the right reasons by the right patients. bit.ly/1Fso1Fx Aujourd’hui à Edmonton, j’ai animé un symposium productif sur l’abus de médicaments sur ordonnance. Après le symposium, j’ai annoncé un financement fédéral visant à augmenter le nombre d’inspections annuelles de pharmacies réalisées par Santé Canada. En collaboration avec des pharmacies partout au Canada, cet investissement permettra de garantir le traitement et l’entreposage sécuritaires et la sécurité des médicaments sur ordonnance au Canada et de réduire les possibilités de détournement de médicaments sur ordonnance pour la vente et l’utilisation illégales. Notre gouvernement a fait de la lutte contre l’abus de médicaments d’ordonnance une priorité, et nous investissons massivement dans une gamme d’initiatives pour combattre ce problème. Notre équipe d’inspecteurs travaillera en collaboration avec les pharmacies de partout au pays pour suivre, déclarer et surveiller les déplacements de médicaments d’ordonnance, ce qui permettra en fin de compte de veiller à ce qu’ils soient utilisés pour les bonnes raisons par les bons patients bit.ly/1S8jkpS
