    VANCOUVER – Rick Hansen’s foundation has announced a $20-million grant to accelerate research into spinal-cord injuries aimed at a paralysis-free world.

    The money will be handed out over 10 years to the Vancouver-based Blusson Spinal Cord Centre, starting this month.

    The centre was opened in 2008 and gathers researchers, medical professionals, physiotherapists and patients in one place.

    Sounds good
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    All in BC. Interesting. Robarts Research in London, Ontario is doing fantastic things ... when I was there touring their lab, they said they don't receive funding from RHF as 'they're all about quality of life now.' How sad.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Quality of life is probably very profitable whereas a cure probably not so much.

    Not working anymore for me either. Try this one: http://www.vancouversun.com/news/ric...088/story.html

    The $20,000,000 is over a ten year period of time, so let's not get too excited.
