To kick off the Legislative year, the Honourable Judith Guichon, the Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, delivered the Speech from the Throne Tuesday, February 12. Within this speech there is a commitment by our government to begin work on creating the environment for a school of traditional Chinese medicine.
This is a huge step forward for the acceptance of and recognition of the importance of Chinese medicine to the future of health care in this province and I hope all of Canada. After spending the last seven years helping out with various projects to improve the standards of education and clinical safety of Chinese medicine in BC this news was so inspiring to hear.
With the move to bring Chinese medicine into the public education system we should see a greater interest in research into Chinese medicine and acupuncture. These are very exciting times and I am really proud to be a part of this growing acceptance of a wonderful system of medicine.
