FEAT BC Autism Evening at CAPONES Restaurant and Live Jazz Club

Vancouver, B.C. – A sold out crowd of parents of autistic children and supporters will be meeting at CAPONES Restaurant and Live Jazz Club, in Yaletown, on the evening of Saturday, September 29th. Dozens of FEAT of BC parents and supporters will be enjoying BC wines, tapas and entertainment by BC jazz performer, Murray Porter .

FEAT of BC (Families for Early Autism Treatment of BC) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization of parents and professionals working towards universal access to effective, science-based treatment for all Canadians diagnosed with autism.

Jean Lewis, founding director of FEAT of BC, states, “The intense interest in this event mirrors the situation in Ontario, where the Conservative Opposition in the current provincial general election has, presumably based on polling data, chosen to highlight in its television ads the Liberal government’s failure to keep a promise that costs for the treatment of autism would be covered by Medicare.”

FEAT of BC will participate aggressively in the next federal general election campaign, in a dozen or more electoral districts in which the margin of victory last time was less than two percent of the vote.
