Conservative MP Lisa Raitt on young onset Alzheimer's disease

Conservative MP Lisa Raitt calls Alzheimer's an illness that many fear and don't openly talk about. But she's working to change that. Raitt is the deputy leader of the opposition. Her husband Bruce Wood was 56 when he was diagnosed with Young Onset Alzheimer's. They are in Calgary this week to check out a new pilot program set up by YouQuest, an organization focusing on young onset dementia.
