March 2010: Glenn Smith on Haiti

Earthquakes may qualify as acts of God. But don't try blaming the Almighty for the calamity gripping Haiti right now if you're talking to Glenn Smith.

Ugandan Member of Parliament Sylvia Ssinabulya, who visited Canada in 2006 and 2007, has taken maternal health as her special interest to champion.
