A Conservative MP stung by the sudden death of colleague Gord Brown is handing out pill case keychains on Parliament Hill, urging everyone he sees to carry a couple of potentially life-saving aspirin.
Rob Nicholson says that after Gord Brown’s fatal collapse earlier this month in his Parliament Hill office, he felt the need to do something, so he went online and ordered hundreds of the keychains to hand out on the Hill, and in his Niagara Falls riding. He says the idea is to have aspirin on hand at all times, to be chewed when the symptoms strike — a measure that’s known to buy heart attack victims precious minutes before help arrives.
Rob Nicholson also says it would be an “excellent idea” for the House of Commons to install defibrillators, something he’s heard from others over the years.
