The purpose of this update is to share with you our most recent letter to Public Health Agency of Canada executives and Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas-Taylor. Our December 3, 2018 'Open Letter' outlines our requests for PHAC and Ministry of Health to take urgent action regarding in-utero transmission of Lyme disease. Letter below.
We are also sharing this link and letter to every single MP and Senator we have met in the last 18 months (from all parties) - all 63 of them as this issue is of great concern.
Please consider sending this link and letter to your MP with a short personalized cover note indicating you are concerned and ask him / her to raise this in Parliament.
You may look up your federal MP here (plug in your postal code in the search bar on right): http://www.ourcommons.ca/Parliamentarians/en/constituencies/FindMP
