Join in the #TreatRareDisease Listening Tour

January 23, 2016

Queen’s Park – Kitchener-Conestoga MPP Michael Harris is inviting all interested out to share their stories and help drive the in support of his province-wide campaign and private members motion calling on government to strike a Select Committee into rare disease treatment in Ontario.

Harris has scheduled a series of open meetings in advance of the February 25th debate of his Private Member’s Motion for the all-party Select Committee to hear from experts and sufferers and create recommendations for Rare Disease Treatment funding.

“This is an issue that crosses all party lines and I’m hopeful MPP’s whose areas we are visiting – and those across the province – will hear these stories and sign on to support my motion February 25th,” Harris offered. “Sufferers need more than words of understanding from government and a pat on the back when they are on the doorstep and the cameras are on – they need an accessible process that will take the politics out of it and ensure support is there when they need it.”
