Ok, I need everyone's help on this. I can't believe the CBC would put this to a vote but they did and we are lagging in the polls!
Yes 19.56%
No. 73.49%
The rest are undecided. Please vote and encourage others to as well!
As far as I am concerned, severe allergies are a disability and covered under the Human Rights Act! No one has a right to vote anything off the Charter of Human Rights! :evil: :verymad

I have cast my vote - for YES of course! I can't believe anyone voted NO, let alone 73% of voters!

I can think of a few reasons why people would vote 'no' to this. There have been recent media stories of parents with requests that may seem unreasonable - cutting down oak trees, etc. There are lots of people who have intolerances or sensitivities that they will call allergies, which leads to true allergies not being taken seriously by the general public. People who voted no are probably afraid there will be unreasonable restrictions placed upon them if allergy protection becomes a human right.
