News From NASK
From Cindy Paskey representing NASK (Niagara Anaphylaxis Support & Knowledge)
How does Motion 546 Help Canadian Families?
MP Dean Allison introduced a Private Members’ Notice of Motion, No. 546 on June 7, 2010 read it here.
“That in the opinion of the House, anaphylaxis is a serious concern for an increasing number
of Canadians and the government should take the appropriate measures necessary to ensure
these Canadians are able to maintain a high quality of life.”
In Canada, right now, we have the opportunity to engage our federal government in educating the general public about the realities of anaphylaxis, an invisible medical condition. Our government can help us secure better and more consistent risk reduction measures and emergency response training that will benefit all families living with severe, life threatening allergies.
There is only one way this will happen.
Canadian MP’s must hear from their constituents.
We’ve heard back from many people who have written their MP in support of the NASK initiative http://nask.ca/events.html
Having done this before, advocating for Sabrina’s Law, I know it’s important to never let up. We must continue working hard and engaging more people.
Cindy is also reminding and asking us that:
Canada is a big place. Please do whatever you can to help support our initiative: urge your friends and families across Canada to write to their MP. Have your children make drawings and write stories, that they send to MP’s.
While vacationing this summer, enlist the help of family and friends in other parts of Canada.
Use your social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc. Imagine the buzz and activity across Canada that we could create.
We have a list of Canadian allergy-related blogs. I am looking for volunteers who would write about our Campaign on behalf of NASK, and keep our planning group informed of activities. Please contact me if you are interested firstname.lastname@example.org .

We have the opportunity and the power. Now is the time to use it to our full advantage.
