Description

The investigation found that Mentor, one of the two biggest companies in implant business may have knowingly allowed faulty breast implants onto the market, forcing women in both countries to go under needless surgeries. Canadian women were applying for long-term disability because the implants had made them too sick to work. Women from four provinces-Ontario, Saskatchewan, Quebec and British Columbia had filed class-action suits against Health Canada.
