    I trust that the government will never acknowledge chronic lyme disease!!! They are just humoring us. Thanks for just wasting our time. If by chance something ever changes it will be thanks to us who are suffering who is pushing for change.

    Jane Philpott’s response is not adequate and does not address the seriousness of this problem. I lost my nursing career and am on disability. I had a text book case of Lyme, was not treated and found myself unable to work three years following that bite that caused classic symptoms of an expanding bull’s eye rash and flu like symptoms. My illness is not recognized by the Canadian Medical System. Your response did not address the plight of those who already have the disease and have lost their quality of life, their careers, homes, savings, retirement savings, loved ones, etc. Many of us were career people; judges, lawyers, teachers, doctors, naturopaths, veterinarians, nurses, etc. Others include the children of our future. All stake holders must be included in drawing up the draft and the framework. It should not be written by one select group and must include the president of the Canadian Lyme Foundation to ensure the draft and framework is not biased and address the plight of those already suffering with Lyme Disease.

    Minister Philpot ….the Framework was supposed to include action items and alloted funding. The Framework negates the role of Chronic Lyme and the research that was presented to support it. The Framework prompted a change in case definition rendering Lyme disease much more restrictive for diagnosis. The Framework made no mention of co-infection that are commonly part of tick borne disease presentation. The Framework was supposed to include all members in its development which most certainly consists more than hearing the plight of thousands of Canadians who have become debilitated by the disease. It is shameful that doctors in Canada continue to receive biased status quo education through directives with the AMMI and feel threatened should they chose to work alongside their patients to provide comprehensive long term treatment. Minister Philpot…this issue is not going away … The Framework fails to meet its mandate on many fronts and your true commitment is imperative!!
