In response to the appeal from Anaphylaxis Canada, I am asking allergy moms, dads and advocates to please contact Minister Aglukkaq immediately regarding the need to pass the proposed food labeling regulations. I tried to contact his office today by phone but was referred to email by reception. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
If this is not done by the end of the month, we will have to start all over again!
This appeal from Anaphylaxis Canada:
As you know Anaphylaxis Canada, together with other members of the allergy community, have been actively lobbying the federal government and the Ministry of Health to act on the proposed food labelling regulations. These regulations were first put forth in July 2008 and have still not been passed.
Thank you to all of you who have written to the Prime Minister's office and the Health Minister as part of our campaign. However, we still need your help. To date, we have not received reassurance from Health Minister Aglukkaq that these regulations will be passed as promised and this is not acceptable.
We encourage you to act today and ask Health Minister Aglukkaq when these regulations will be passed. "As soon as possible" is not an acceptable answer.
Here's what you can do:
· Call the Health Minister's office directly at 1-613-957-0200 AND
· Join the letter writing campaign on the Allergic Living website: http://www.allergicliving.com/petitions/food-labelling/
Accurate and clear food labelling is such a critical part of keeping allergic individuals safe. Help Health Minister Aglukkaq understand she needs to do her part and take action today!
Thank you for your help.
