    Acira, the report was great. I will try to see if CBC Montreal run the same story. I just thought it would be great to mention Dr. Castan's contribution to his profession not only in Canada, but also celebrate his voluntary work.

    The link to the story run by Radio-Canada this evening and at the bottom the video. Sorry in French only, but worth celebrating this gentleman and his work.

    So Dr. Castan is a Cardio-Vascular Specialist and quite a humble man. 30 years ago, he had the idea to recycle pacemakers, the Institut de Cardiologie de Montreal participate in the project by making sure those pacemakers work well
