Local patients benefit from more screening options for colorectal cancer

Selwyn Gundy is among nearly a thousand area patients who have taken advantage of increased screening options to detect colorectal cancer earlier. By working in partnership together, Grand River Hospital (GRH) and St. Mary’s General Hospital have increased colorectal cancer screening options for area residents through the flexible sigmoidoscopy (flex sig) program. The program has proven successful since its launch in 2011 by screening close to 1,000 residents and detecting four cancers that may have otherwise gone undetected.

The lead investor on both popular TV shows, Canada’s Dragon’s Den and the US-equivalent Shark Tank, is no-nonsense when it comes to money-losing ventures and bad business ideas. His reaction to a request for him to invest in green energy in Ontario is a good indicator of where that industry is headed.
