Gigi the Giraffe (sponsored by Richmond Hill’s 2016 Community & Cultural grant) is participating in Richmond Hill’s Cultural Summit today at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. Tickets are complimentary. Hope to see you there. Featured in picture–Mayor Dave Barrow.
Many Thanks to all of you who did sign the Change.org “Ticking Lyme Bomb” petition!!!
The Change.org “Ticking Lyme Bomb” petition ( https://www.change.org/p/minister-philpott-ticking-lyme-bom… ) although highly successful in making Canadians aware of the medical politics of Lyme disease is not defendable in the House of Commons.
A NEW Petition that is able to be used in the House of Commons was written by Member of Parliament Elizabeth May. Please follow the link below to sign this new Parliamentary e-Petition which was written so that the draft Federal Lyme Framework issued February 7th can be protested by our Members of Parliament.
The Parliamentary Petition is found here: https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Sign/e-903
Although the two petitions are useful for different reasons, both of them are important to sign.
Please also share this message with anyone else you know who might be concerned about being infected with Lyme disease and having an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment for it available in Canada.
Gigi the Giraffe had a FANTASTIC time at the 2017 Grammy’s. Thank you James Corden & J Lo for welcoming Gigi to her first awards show.
