Emails to Prime Minister re Covid and ME/FM

Dear Friends

The National ME/FM Action Network has now sent three emails to the Prime Minister, with copies to the Minister of Health and the Minister for Disability Inclusion, concerning Covid-19.

The first email (May 20, included in Quest 123) points out three immediate issues for the ME/FM community – access to health services, income security and food security.

Response

Dear Ms. Parlor:

On behalf of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, I would like to acknowledge receipt of your email regarding issues of concern to the National ME/FM Action Network. I regret the delay in replying.

Please be assured that your comments have been carefully reviewed. I note that you have also sent copies of your letter to the Honourable Patricia Hajdu, Minister of Health, and the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion. While the Prime Minister appreciates being made aware of your correspondence, he will leave the matters you raise to be considered by Ministers Hajdu and Qualtrough.

Thank you for writing to the Prime Minister.

The second email (June 5) asks the government to spread the message to Covid patients, health care providers and the public that recovery from Covid can be slow and could possibly lead to long-term ME/FM.

Response

Dear Ms. Parlor:

On behalf of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, I would like to acknowledge receipt of your email of June 5, 2020, regarding support for individuals recovering from COVID-19.

Please be assured that your comments, offered on behalf of the National ME/FM Action Network, have been carefully reviewed. I note that you have also sent copies of your correspondence to the Honourable Patrica A. Hajdu, Minister of Health, and the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion. While the Prime Minister appreciates being made aware of your concerns, he will leave your comments to be considered by the Ministers.

The third email (June 10) is based on the government's June 5th announcement that the government is giving financial support to people who have qualified for the disability tax credit. We thank the government for recognizing the financial needs of persons with disabilities, but point out that the DTC provides a seriously incomplete list of people with disabilities.

Response

Dear Ms. Parlor:

On behalf of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, I would like to acknowledge receipt of your correspondence regarding supports for Canadians with disabilities to address challenges from COVID-19.

Thank you for taking the time to write. You may be assured that your comments, offered on behalf of the National ME/FM Action Network, have been carefully reviewed.

I note that you have also sent your correspondence to the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion. While the Prime Minister appreciates the time you have taken to write, he will leave your comments to be considered by Minister Qualtrough.

Once again, thank you for writing.
