Question for Senator Munson on Budget Implementation Bill, 2017, No. 1

1st Session, 42nd Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 135

Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: Senator, would you take another question?

Senator Munson: I'm getting nervous now.

Senator Dyck: I'll take that as a "yes."

Senator Munson: Yes.

Senator Dyck: I wonder if the honourable senator is aware that there have been many studies done — and I haven't kept in touch with the literature over the last decade, but many studies have shown that a moderate, small amount of alcohol is actually good for your health. In fact, you're probably drinking the wrong kind of wine, because they say that it's red wine with alkaloids and resveratrol that's good for your health, but no more than one glass. Are you aware of those studies?

Senator Munson: I thank you for the question, and I am truly aware of those studies. I just wish that somebody had told me about that 40 years ago when I was in the press gallery and didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it. Now that I've become a mature senator, I've taken that advice and yes, obviously, I'm a living example of good health. Thank you very much.
