Organ donation: Wales' presumed consent law makes headline news in Canada

This week Wales made history by becoming the first UK country to introduce a system of presumed consent.

I knew it would make headline news in Wales, and I suspected the UK national media would be interested, but I never thought the good people of Canada would be talking about it.

Breakfast show Canada AM questioned Rob Osborne on the Welsh system

On Thursday evening I received a call from a producer for Canada AM - the number one breakfast TV show in the country. He wanted me to come on and talk about our new system.

"Why are you interested?" I asked. "It's big news over here" he told me. So this morning I appeared on the programme to answer questions about our new system.

According to CTV News most Canadians prefer an opt in system, the one Wales has just abandoned.
