That sounds like a relatively well-rounded committee. I will be interested to see what comes out of it.

AL will keep asking. Gwen

Does anyone know how to reach Ana Wiger? I would like to get a statement from the Alberta Group of parents who have been lobbying the Alberta Government. I am also curious if they are satisfied with a policy or with the direction their Government is going. can someone put Ana or one of the parents from that group in touch with me directly at tracy@m210.org
Since BC is trying to hang their hat on Alberta's work, I think we need to be well informed as to what the current status is.
thanks

Hi there!

Re-raising - I don't think there's been any change.

Please come & chat on Advocacy and Accomodations - Alberta school board anaphylaxis policies, or lack thereof.
I'm new at this but am looking for parents wanting to make a change in how we protect allergic children in Alberta Schools
