Presenting Petitions: Anaphylatic Travellers

Ms. Irene Mathyssen (London—Fanshawe, NDP):  

    Mr. Speaker, I have a petition from a number of Canadians who ask the House of Commons to honour and support a motion that was unanimously voted on in regard to Motion No. 230 on anaphylaxis.

     Those who suffer from anaphylaxis are very vulnerable, particularly when they are travelling. In an airplane, at 35,000 feet, it is very difficult to get emergency medical care.

     The petitioners ask that Parliament enact policy to reduce the risk of anaphylactic passengers when they are on public transportation.
