Antibiotic resistance will soon be a full-blown public health crisis, and if we don't do something to address it, Canadians could face some serious consequences.

That's the message McMaster's Gerry Wright delivered to Parliamentarians, members of the media and others on Thursday, April 23, 2015.

Wright, director of the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research, spoke to the group as part of the Bacon and Eggheads speaker series held in Parliament's Centre Block.

The breakfast sessions bring Parliamentarians together with experts in science and engineering.
