Readers of the By George Journal and family friends will know that I am currently involved in advocating for federal action on anaphylaxis (life-threatening allergies). Our volunteer group of families in Niagara (see http://www.nask.ca ) has been working with our local Members of Parliament and have secured an important meeting in Ottawa on December 7th.
We are hopeful that this meeting and a motion introduced in the House of Commons by MP Dean Allison will prompt Ministers and government officials to consider a thoughtful, coordinated approach to responding to the growing number of Canadians who are living with anaphylaxis.
To read more on this, go to my news article posted by our local, independent news organ Niagara At Large:
