Ah - I'll look on one of our PCs later. (Though I've had no compatibilty trouble on cbc.ca, just rdi).

I think Karen and one of the boys is in one of AL's news photos for the next issue.

Anyone else see much of the coverage?

The story I saw on the news, the reporter interviewed some man from an organization (anaphylaxis or allergy) based in PQ. He spoke with a strong accent, but spoke English well.

He did say that the next big hurdle is to have a standard for the use of the word *free*, as in *peanut-free*. I kept thinking about the CAC labelling -- but I don't think this guy was associated with them, but I'm pretty sure he supports them. :wink:

I saw several segments on CTV and Global here in Montreal. I forget on which one, but they interviewed someone from Anaphylaxis Canada who said that it's definitely a step in the right direction but she hopes that the "may contain" issue gets addressed. All in all, as the day progressed, the segments got longer and longer and they did a pretty good job.
I was very disappointed in The Gazette though....just a tiny little blurb in yesterday's paper.

I didn't see anything about it in the Toronto Sun, or on CP24. I know Laura was vacationing in Italy - but I would have expected someone else to cover health issues while she was away. I also didn't find anything on CP24's web-site when I looked there yesterday.

Since it's possible I just missed it on those two places, if anyone else saw it there -- please correct me.
