FEAT-BC Goes Coastal!!!
FEAT-BC is coming to Atlantic Canada.
FEAT and the families involved with FEAT have actively led the fight for autism treatment and services on the legal and political fronts in Canada. Atlantic Canadians with an autistic family member, autistic persons and persons with an interest in autism are encouraged to attend this event if at all possible.
This is huge folks. This is a great opportunity to thank political leaders like Shawn Murphy, Andy Scott, Peter Stoffer and Jim Munson who have cared; who have tried to help and are still trying to help persons with autism in Canada. Let's greet the folks from BC and show them "the very best". Lets thank Andy, Peter, Jim and Shawn. And let's send a clear and strong message to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and federal Health Minister Tony Clement that their callous disregard for the health and well being of autistic Canadians will not go unchallenged.
I have already made my reservations at the Holiday Inn Dartmouth and I hope to see everyone there!!
