Although I don't have all the details yet, our local CTV News affiliate, CJOH News, will do an interview with us as well as a couple of other FA families.
I had contacted a local reporter for the station who also happens to be a parent at my kids school. She got back to me quickly and feels that more people need to be made aware of the importance of Bill 3 (Anaphylactic Students Protection Act) and the difficulties we face day to day, specifically as it relates to anaphylaxis and schools.
I'll post when I have more information but I was happy for the coverage they will give this important legislation, maybe it will convince the Liberal government to get of their bottoms and pass the bill.

katiee, gotta love living in a big city, eh? How absolutely wonderful!
I do believe, after what I posted the other night from Cindy at NASK in your TAKE ACTION thread re the Bill, that we do have a lot of work still ahead of us that we perhaps didn't think we did have and any and all attention that can be brought to the matter is simply super!
Great stuff kiddo! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Oh, you will have to let us know (I mean me personally [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] ) when you're on because I actually do get that news broadcast where I live and my kids would love to see your family's faces!
Then thinking, you know what? This *could* be done in a smaller place as well so it's not just a "big city" thing. Your family has just put such a face to PA.
Big pat on back!
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
