ESTH Counselor passed information contained in reftels to
Health Canada and Foreign Affairs Canada (FAC). According to
FAC, Ian Shugart, Senior Asst. Deputy Minister in Health
Canada and Michael Small, Director General for Global Issues
in FAC will represent Canada at the Senior Officials Meeting
in Washington next week. ESTH Counselor raised with Health
Canada and FAC the question of whether a representative of
Agriculture Canada should be included in the delegation.
Officials indicated that they would consider the question and
get back to us if there is to be any change in the
composition of the delegation. We are still waiting to hear
from the GOC whether Canada will join in the joint statement
we provided to them last week and whether their
representative will agree to participate in a panel
discussion October 7 on response and containment.
