The CAI is asking everyone who wants to see action on severe allergy issues to contact their local Member(s) of Parliament. Write. E-mail. Phone. Visit. Go to the CAI website for direction on what can be said to MPs – http://cai-allergies.ca/
As stated in the latest entry on the CAI blog: Over the next few months, connecting with your MP is the most important thing you can do to move the goals of the Canadian Anaphylaxis Initiative forward. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts. Together we will see results in Ottawa through the up-coming year.
Also, you can help by spreading the word. Direct others to the CAI website and CAI Facebook page. Encourage other families to become informed and get involved. Share the information about Motion 230 and the CAI’s 5-point policy request.
