Gwen, you may already be working on something like this but I hope AL is planning to do an artice in December/January regarding the first year of Bill 3 in Ontario. I would love to be able to express my gratitude to the parents of Sabrina. They made my work so much easier. We might be able to see what the other provinces are doing to afford equal protection to all of Canada's children. They are often referred to as our most precious resource but what are the other provinces doing?
A gentle nudge?

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

I think that's an excellent idea Susan!

Just today I was thinking of asking the members of our local support group to write short notes about how their lives and that of their kids have changed thanks to Sabrina's Law - if such is the case.

Maybe we could start a thread on the forum about that...? Even those not in Ontario have been positively affected, I like to think. For myself (living in QC), just knowing that at least one province takes the possible risk of anaphylaxis in school that seriously has helped stiffen my own spine and made me realize that rather than being a hysterical parent, I'm being a vigilant parent who needs the help of the school to keep my children safe.

I also personally feel that the new national anaphylaxis guidelines (see ) have helped me a lot - they've given me the language I need to approach my sons' school and have really helped me focus my approach so that I concentrate on prevention and risk-reduction.

Okay - I have started the thread (LOL). Go to Schools: anaphylaxis laws at ... =9488#9488 .
