Glen Murray, Minister of Transportation, issued the following statement in response to recommendations on the monitoring of uncontrolled hypoglycemia among drivers in Ontario:

"I would like to thank André Marin, Ombudsman of Ontario, for his thoughtful advice and recommendations on mandatory medical reporting of uncontrolled hypoglycemia in Ontario.

We appreciate the Ombudsman's efforts to identify improvements to our medical reporting process and will carefully review his recommendations. I am pleased to report that many of these recommendations are part of our program review already underway, and others have already been acted on.
