A boy Ryan Gibbons was not allowed to carry his inhalor With him at School and died from a asthma attack.
“Sandra Gibbons knew something needed to change when her son Ryan, 12, died after an asthma attack at his school in Straffordville last year (2012).
Ryan wasn’t allowed to carry his inhaler with him at school, Gibbons said. So she started a petition to require school boards to adopt standardized asthma plans.
Gibbons’ petition garnered more than 1,500 signatures. The bill passed second reading with all-party support at Queen’s Park this week. The government has an obligation to ensure that (when) kids are at school that they have the safest environment possible.
It would also allow asthmatic students to carry a reliever inhaler at all times, with a doctor’s approval.
“There will be, of course, discretion,” Yurek said. “You’re not going to have a four-year-old carrying around their own puffer.”
I get upset, sad, angry and a lot more and tears are coming. I have a question for all wanting to deny a person having asthma their puffer:
– Would you deny a heart patient to wear his heart medicine?
It should be a human right to have ones medicine at hand at all times.
We have sertant organs that is crusual for living: heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, stomach, brain a.s.o. Without those organs functioning we are no more. Medicine helps the organ function so if you deny the person having or using their medicine they die.
Rest in Peace Ryan
