Hello Advocates, Families, and Caregivers,
That’s a wrap! It’s time to advocate. The consultations are over but we are still taking feedback until October 13th.
Attached is a petition that you can print, sign, and pass along to all those who wish to see Henson trust legislation as a reality in Alberta.
Inclusion Alberta has agreed to collect the petitions and send them to the Calgary Currie office so that they can be tabled at the Legislature in the fall.
Please ensure the petition is filled out with a full name, Alberta address and signature, and then bring them in or mail them to Inclusion Alberta ( address on petition) or to the Calgary-Currie constituency office at 2108B 33 Avenue SW Calgary, AB T2T 1Z6.
The deadline is October 13.
The more signatures that we can present to the legislature for tabling, the better. Let’s show Albertans and the members of the Legislature that there is a great deal of support for Henson trust legislation here in Alberta. We will of course continue to send updates on our progress.
Thank you all for your participation and passion.
As always, feel free to contact our office regarding any questions or feedback on the Henson trust.
MLA for Calgary-Currie
