Update from Peter - victory against Ford's attempt to deregulate TCM and acupuncture

An update from Peter victory against Ford's attempt to deregulate TCM and acupuncture:

"On February 28th, the government introduced yet another omnibus bill. Bill 88 contained, Schedule 5, which proposed to wind down the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO), a step which would eliminate the college and deregulate the profession.

The premier generated a political firestorm with his ambush of practitioners and consumers of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. After a huge push back, and a strong, effective, peaceful lobby, he backed down, and announced on Monday that Schedule 5 will be removed from the bill. Here is a video clip, taken at the rally in front of Queen’s Park, moments after this news was shared.

Thanks to everyone who called, emailed, organized, signed petitions - advocacy works!"
