The Bill was presented!

So many things happening at the same time .... so many people working together on all levels to bring awareness and information about Lyme Disease!

Letters to MPs and MPPs (let's hope they respond and react), invitations to speak at different groups, letters to newspapers, outreach at various events: We have to make a change, not only for ourselves, but for all our friends and family members who might still become infected.

Personally, I've written to the Hon. Deb Matthews, minister of Health, at least twice and never received a response or even acknowledgement that my letters were received.
Same with letters to our MPP, Linda Jeffrey, who is also sitting on the Health, Education and Social Policy Committee. No response to any of my letters, so I sent another one off this morning to ask for the support of Elizabeth May's bill.
