We just got this update in BC from Anaphylaxis Canada. It is WONDERFUL news of support!!
Caroline :D :D :D

Just wanted to give you all a quick update on some of the progress we've
made this week on advocating for Bill 210.

The two key initiatives that we were able to accomplish this week are:

* A letter of support was drafted and approved by the CSACI and is
being couriered to BC tomorrow for Brian to distributed to all MLAs in
BC. This letter was signed off by the President and past president of
the CSACI and is under the letter head of AC, AAIA, CSACI, AQAA and
CAAIF. It's a great show of support!
* Liberal MP Dave Levac (the politician responsible for Sabrina's
Law in Ontario) drafted a letter of support for B210 and is sending it
to all MLAs in BC.

Both letters should be in the hands of the MLAs by early next week.

That's great.

Lends terrific credibility, and the allergists will lend a sense of urgency.

That is wonderful.

I also emailed all the allergists that I know of in Ottawa and elsewhere asking them if they would ask their colleagues in BC to send an email. (Did that just before I saw this post!)
