Bill 232

Greetings MAIN Members

I have great news from our Advocacy Committee for families dealing with life threatening allergies.

On Monday October 6, 2008 Bill 232 - The Public Schools Amendment Act (Anaphylaxis Policies) will be presented for a final vote during the Manitoba Legislative Assembly session.

Erin Selby, MLA for Southdale introduced Bill 232 in May of this year. It did not make it through all the steps prior to the end of the Legislative Assembly session in mid June.

Bill 232 was reintroduced in the fall session, has gone through the committee stage so is ready to go through the remaining steps. The majority of the MLAs have expressed support for this Bill throughout the legislative process so it is expected to pass.

MAIN members are welcome to attend the session in the Gallery on Monday Oct 6, 2008 between 3:00 and 5:00pm. If you are interested in attending, please let me know in advance as we need to provide a list of names for security.

If you have any questions call me.

Nancy Boni
Manitoba Anaphylaxis Information Network (MAIN)
