Another reason not to object to a DNA test for Genetic Genealogy in Canada

Perhaps like me you missed that Canada has joined the rest of the G7 in preventing insurance companies from using results of any genetic tests to determine coverage or pricing. That has been a concern of those asked to take a test for genealogy. But insurance companies had objected to the law raising the spectre of general insurance  rate increases.

There's an interesting article "Why insurers are wrong about Canada's genetic non-discrimination law" — http://theconversation.com/why-insurers-are-wrong-about-canadas-genetic-non-discrimination-law-81380
