Read about it in our press release:

Members of Parliament Pass Anaphylaxis Motion 230 – May 22, 2013

There are so many people to thank for helping to make Canada’s recognition of anaphylaxis a reality.  MP Dean Allison introduced the Motion. Working closely with MP Rick Dykstra and their combined staff, they educated and gained support among all of their colleagues on Parliament Hill.

Two Hundred and sixty-three MPs stood up and let their YES vote be counted!

Notable are the number of families across Canada who let their MP know the significance of his / her support.

Your calls, your letters and your conversations have been responded to.  M-230 received unanimous all-Party support!   Two hundred and sixty-three MPs stood up and let their YES vote be counted!  When the call for ‘Nay’ votes was made, not a single MP stood up.  A rare occurrence, indeed!

As a community, we can continue working together to make positive change to improve the quality of life for people and families living with anaphylaxis.

Please thank your MP for his / her support.  Let your MP know how advances with the CAI policy goals will impact the lives of the people you love.

Special thanks for the persistent, behind-the-scenes work of the CAI Planning Group:  Chris George, Debbie Bruce, Mindie Ferkul, Gladys Vergis-Mayo and Roy Mayo.

Stay tuned!

Cindy
