Allowing paid blood donor clinics in Toronto and elsewhere will increase the risk of another, tragic and unnecessary, tainted blood crisis when tens of thousands of Canadians got infected with AIDS and Hepatitis C through blood. One of those people was my late husband James Kreppner. Another was my buddy, the late John Plater. I'm tired of burying my loved ones.
Signing this petition will help send a message to our federal Health Minister that Canadians do not want another tainted blood crisis. The louder the message, the better. Please ask your family and friends to sign this as well. Please ask Facebook friends to repost it.
There are many other ways to help. Please feel free to contact the following and just say you are against paid blood donations in Canada.
1) your Member of Parliament
2) your Member of Provincial Parliament. For Ontarians, it is:
3) the press (Globe, Toronto Star, etc.)
4) TV (CBC, etc.)
5) social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
We surpassed 300 signatures everyone! We going strong and collecting as many signatures as possible until June 9, 2013. Please keep telling everyone to sign thank you!
Thank you very much for your help in ensuring the safest blood system for all of us.
