This month, the MS Society, alongside a group of outstanding MS Ambassadors, gathered together on Parliament Hill to launch MS Awareness Month with a strong message: Canada may be a world leader in hockey and maple syrup, but we’re also a leader in rates of MS in the world, and that’s a reality we’re not willing to accept.
