  1. Well, this is great news to see this published! As the events main organizer, I am very grateful to the people that have helped bring this all together, and on short notice. Please, if you can find the time, come and join us, and learn about this horrible disease that is affecting so many Canadians. Learn how to protect yourself, and watch for early warning signs. This is NOT something to be taken lightly, as you will find out after talking to anyone that has Lyme.
    The entire St. Lawrence area is literally crawling with ticks carrying Lyme Disease, and yet there are so many that are not aware of it, and find out the hard way. Please, at least visit the CanLyme website provided to learn more.
    All the best

  2. Thanks very much for letting your readers know about the rally being held tomorrow. Despite an increase in the number of ticks that carry Lyme disease and other infections that can make people very ill indeed, Canadian doctors and the public continue to know very little about it. We’re hoping to change that with more media coverage, and want to thank you for being the first outlet in Canada to mention the rally.

  3. Hi, I’m Christine’s sister and hope to go, exactly where on the Hill? and where would parking be? Is there
    a special parking lot for disabled, I have GBS (also neuro) thanks, Germaine
