Development of Insulin Pump Funding in Ontario, B.C. & Newfoundland and Labrador- Info Needed!

Hi everyone!

I'm a type 1 diabetic of 10 years and pump users for 9 years, am currently writing my undergraduate thesis on a topic that is close to home: the development of insulin pump funding in Ontario, B.C. and Newfoundland & Labrador, and am wondering if anyone has any resources (i.e. news articles/releases, key informants about the topics, research papers, etc.) or personal stories about how insulin pump funding came about in the above three provinces (i.e., in Ontario it was a result of a Bill 55, but who were the key players in getting that bill passed?).

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
