Just received the following email from Elizabeth May, Green Party leader (and sole Green Party Member of Parliament): "Thank you for your email about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). I find it appalling that in a prosperous country like ours, many chronic diseases afflicting Canadians are still being misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. Canadians living with ME/CFS are too often stigmatized and left without the social and economic support they need to meet their unique needs. I support your call for stronger research, health, and social infrastructure to support Canadians living with ME/CFS. The fact that ME/CFS is poorly understood contributes to a lack of treatment and care options for those living with the illnesses. Moreover, a general lack of public awareness has contributed to the unfair stigma associated with these conditions, which, in turn, makes it more difficult for people living with ME/CFS to access the accommodation they are entitled to. For these reasons, I agree that improved funding and research, health care delivery, and public awareness that respects the realities and needs of Canadians living with ME/CFS is needed. I will work with the federal government to see if it can build a framework with the provinces and the medical community to ensure that general practitioners are properly equipped, and that there are enough specialists to provide appropriate treatment to Canadians with ME/CFS. With stronger support for improved research, health, and social outcomes, the federal government can ensure that Canadians living with ME/CFS are treated with understanding, justice and equity. Thank you again for writing. Sincerely, Elizabeth May, O.C., M.P. Saanich-Gulf Islands Leader of the Green Party of Canada" Not one of the governing Liberal MP's responded to the #MillionsMissing emails sent from our household. Considering the positive response @Kati received from her opposition MP today, perhaps this is where we should be focusing our advocacy efforts.
