The Standing Committee on Health Approves the Purple Day Act!

February 17, 2012 · No Comments

Excellent news from the Purple Day for Epilepsy Facebook page:

“Canada: Standing committe on Health ( HESA) approved all amendments for Bill C-278 the Purple Day Act indentifying March 26 as a day for Epilepsy Awareness. A new copy of the bill will be printed and it will be presented in the House of Commons for the third round of debate soon. If it passes it will move forward to the Senate for final approval. Thanks to all you you who wrote the committee to share your story of what’s it like for you and/or a family member living with epilepsy. Stay tuned for the next update!”

This is fantastic! Purple Day is that much closer to being officially recognized by the Canadian Federal government! Keep up the great work everybody! Keep contacting your officials and maintain the Act’s momentum!
