The debate on the issue actually got quite lively with the opposition weighing in with differing views:

Debbie continues:

Quote:
MP Dean Allison, who is sponsoring a motion to raise awareness of anaphylaxis, spoke about the motives behind his Motion-230.
"Although these considerable steps have been taken, more can be done. Businesses and governments should do more to help those who live with the condition. More specifically, Parliament should recognize that anaphylaxis is a serious condition and create the necessary awareness to help those living with anaphylaxis have a higher quality of life.
Preventive measures should be taken by everyday Canadians in order to ensure the safety of those around them, especially those at risk of having an anaphylactic reaction. Understanding the condition and which allergens could cause reactions could lead to a reduction of incidents and more peace of mind for Canadians living with severe life-threatening allergies. With the passing of Motion No. 230, Canadians living with anaphylaxis will receive much needed recognition from our government. We stand with them in their efforts to promote awareness of the condition."

It would be incredible to actually have people understand and be helpful regarding my allergens. Simply having people not question me on my symptoms and how do I "really know" I am allergic would be welcoming.

I do live in a dream world where one day students will not have to fight against exclusion based on allergies!
