Petition Requesting Support of Environmental Illnesses

Hello everyone,

A bunch of us at //groups.yahoo.com/group/MCS-Canada/
have created the petition below to ask the leaders of all the Canadian political parties to pledge to support and work on issues on behalf of us with Environmental Illnesses. If you agree with what is written and would like to participate with the petition please do the following:

Copy and paste the petition into a new email

Add your name, city and province

Send it back to me at the email address listed ( poulin@isp.com )

Please feel free to forward it on to other Canadian MCSers as well and have them follow the same procedure.

I will collate the info onto one or several pages so all the information is together and then send the completed petition to the national headquarters for each of the political parties. Please respond ASAP so we can get this out to the parties and get their response before the election.

Thank you.
Bonita Poulin


Petition Requesting Support of Environmental Illnesses

We, the undersigned, are a group of Canadians injured by the toxic effects of chemicals and are connected with many more such groups. According to a study published in the peer-reviewed journal, Environmental Health Perspectives, approximately 12-15% of the populations of industrialized countries suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity a.k.a. chemically induced illnesses, diseases and injury, a condition in which they experience severe adverse reactions from exposures to tens of thousands of common toxic and neuro-toxic chemicals which are now ubiquitous in our society.

We would like to throw our support behind a political party that will recognize and help those disabled by Environmental Illnesses, especially Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Fibromyalgia. These emerging illnesses are poorly recognized and understood by mainstream medicine. There are few diagnostic tests and treatments and those of us afflicted have been fighting an uphill battle to get proper diagnosis, health care, safe temporary and permanent housing, accommodation in the workplace and accessibility to public places. Specifically this is what we need:

a) Recognition of Environmental Illness and related emerging illnesses by mainstream medicine, Health Canada, Insurance Companies and Provincial Health Care Plans. This would include funding for research on these illnesses that has not been addressed by pharmaceutical companies.

b) Supporting the right of Canadians to have access to cost effective, alternative health care treatments, natural medicines such as vitamins and supplements as well as safe foods free from pesticides, hormones and Genetic Modification such as by supporting and passing into law bills like Greg Thompson's Bill C-416.

c) Both temporary and permanent safe, low cost housing options for people with Environmental Illness and especially Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.

d) Good environmental policies and the willingness to support issues such as pesticide bans and laying fines against environmental polluters, creating cleaner air for all Canadians.

e) Consideration of chemical sensitivities in issues of access to public places, accommodation in the workplace and support for caregivers.

If you are willing to pledge to support and work on these issues on behalf of us with Environmental Illnesses, we will support you publicly in the upcoming election campaign. Please reply to poulin@isp.com
