Hear, Hear for B.C. MP Hedy Fry:
Quote:

One thing that concerns me is that there are motions and bills from the government side that are all very nice. The government makes a statement and asks the House to agree with the statement.

I would like to see some bills for which there is an action plan that must put the government's feet to the fire to make sure that things are actually done. Knowing is not enough. We have to now do. I would prefer to see some teeth in some of these types of bills.

:thumbsup Now let's get official ruling that anaphylaxis is a disability so that we can ask for accomodations. Only a few provinces have good school policies.
