That's a good idea and good news. I've long wanted to donate blood - my daughter has required a number of transfusions of blood and platelets through her treatment for leukemia so it would be nice to be able to contribute as I know first hand how important it is.

To be fair Quorn could just "bend the knee" and make a Canadian variation of their items fortified with B vitamins and get Health Canada approval. They would have to to change the packaging anyway to meet the English/French language requirements. I'm not sure why they are holding out over such a minor requirement.

I am so old and have been in Canada so long that I used to donate before we were banned. My infected plasma is already coursing through the veins of the unsuspecting natives. I'll squirt out some more tainted blood when allowed, of course.
