I just got this from Anaphylaxis Canada today, and I'm spreading the word about it.
We thought you would be interested in knowing that a key piece of legislation is being introduced in the BC Legislature regarding anaphylaxis policies in public schools for the province of British Columbia. A private member's bill is scheduled to be proposed on Wednesday March 28, 2007 by David Cubberley (MLA for Saanich South and New Democrat Education Critic). This bill is entitled "Anaphylactic Student Protection Act 2007".
Many of you have children who would benefit from province-wide standards for anaphylaxis management plans.
Don't remain silent on this important issue. Your support is needed now.
To find out how you can support this bill personally, contact your MLA directly. Click on the following link to send an email to your MLA today: http://www.leg.bc.ca/mla/3-4.asp and also provide a copy of the email to: Mr. Cubberley's office at firstname.lastname@example.org and to Hon. Shirley Bond, Minister of Education at email@example.com.
You are also welcome to attend the legislative session being held tomorrow at 1:30pm at the BC Legislature Parliament Buildings in Victoria to show your support. If you would like to attend this session please contact Mr. Cubberley's Legislative Assistant, Brian Kowalski at 250-953-4741 for further details.
For more information on how you can connect with other parent advocates in the BC area, please contact Anaphylaxis Canada directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can forward your information.
