What follows is the update from Purple Day’s Facebook page:

“Canada: Please help !!! All written Submissions to the Standing committee on Health in Ottawa need to be in by Tuesday, Feb. 14th. Please write them and ask them to support Bill C-278 The Purple Day Act so it moves on to the next step.
Committees Directorate
Sixth Floor, 131 Queen Street
House of Commons
Ottawa ON K1A 0A6
Tel.: 613-992-3150
Fax: 613-947-3089

Bill C-278 once it passes all steps will mean March 26th will be officially recognized as a day for epilepsy awareness but you won’t get a day off work. As a bill it is recognized but once it goes through all steps it will eventually moves on to the Senate for final approval to make it law. It’s a big deal in Canada. We encourage Canadians who have epilepsy and also those who have family member living with epilepsy to share your stories of why endorsement of this act is important for persons with epilepsy. Feel free to include some of the stories you encoutered first hand that demonstrate the need for increased awareness of epilepsy so the public understands and learns more about epilepsy and seizures.

Everyone email the Standing Committee on Health now! We only have a few days! Support Purple Day and Cassidy Megan!
