We have clarification now on what is happening Thursday. MPP Kiwala wants us to send letters of support from each FASD organization supporting the motion to have a day recognizing FASD in Ontario and the need for it.
She is also tabling a private member bill specifically related to education which we will receive a copy of on Thursday. If this bill is similar to what we saw earlier, it will make a huge difference in our educational system.
Feel free to use the below link with your organization's logo to show support that MPP Kiwala can use during the debate.
Thank you again for all of your support! We are very much looking forward to seeing you both at Queen’s Park on Thursday, Dec 14th. Please see more details below.
On this day, MPP Kiwala will be debating her Motion to Recognize Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Day in Ontario. These proceedings will take place in the afternoon.
Please note that this week, MPP Kiwala will also be introducing a Private Member’s Bill (PMB) , which will focus on education specifically. This PMB will not be debated, but our office can provide you with a copy upon your arrival . Please note that the Motion and Private Member’s Bill are two separate pieces of legislation. The PMB will be submitted on a separate date and will not be debated.

MPP Kiwala encourages you to share a letter of support (see attachment) that she can provide to her fellow MPPs to reinforce the need for this Motion. I have attached a sample letter of support for your convenience, however, it would greatly appreciated knowing how your organization would uniquely benefit from this legislation. We request that your letter be printed on letterhead and that you allow MPP Kiwala the privilege of using your organization’s logo when promoting my Bill.
