– Green Party MLA Andrew Weaver supported reopening the clinic when I asked him on a Skype Chat in Oct 2013. Other Green party candidates supported reopening it too. The 2013 BC Conservatives Leader John Cummins & several BCCP candidates supported reopening it in 2013. Current BC Conservatives leader Dan Brooks refused to answer my question about it. 

-explain to MLA’s why it’s a problem that the BC government does not properly train medical professionals on ADHD.

Also ask your MLA’s why they’re not implementing the BC Medical Association 8 ADHD policy recommendations?
