The article informs that the refusal to include aboriginal groups in the Pan-Canadian Public Health Network has helped to exacerbate the pandemic H1N1 in 2009. The Pan-Canadian Public Health Network, created in 2005 is designed to encourage the experts to tackle public health issues. Mary Simon, president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami believes that the Inuit voice is lost and said that Inuit have been consistent in seeking high level representation at Parliamentary standing committees.
