An Important Message on the Ontario Lung Health Action Plan

We are passing along these two important advocacy initiatives with a request to help build broad support:

Ryan’s Law: MPP Jeff Yurek’s bill: Ryan’s Law (Ensuring Asthma Friendly Schools) addresses the need for aprovince-wide policy on accessibility to emergency-management inhalers in schools, and an informed and standardized asthma policy for all schools in Ontario. Passed second reading, Ryan’s Law is closer than ever to becoming a reality.

Lung Health Act: As many of you may be aware, on November 19 last year, MPP Kathryn McGarry added legislative weight to our call for the establishment of an Ontario Lung Health Action Plan when she tabled a private member’s bill, Bill 41, Lung Health Act, 2014. The bill has passed second reading, has been referred to committee, and needs our support to make it law.

“Once again, Ontario is on the leading edge of tobacco-related policies, Associate Health Minister Dipika Damerla introducing legislation banning all flavoured tobacco, including menthol, and treating e-cigarettes like traditional cigarettes. Aiming for passage of the bill to take effect January 1, 2016, the law would limit the sale and consumption of e-cigarettes by anyone under 19 years of age and their use would be restricted to the same places as regular cigarettes. With backing from the Board of Directors, Kyle Davies forwarded the following letter to Associate Health Minister Damerla supporting the proposed legislation on behalf of the RTSO.”
