"What prevents man from attaining happiness is not his nature, but the artifice of civilization."
Claude Lévi-Strauss, Tristes Tropiques (1955)
ASEQ-EHAQ is a group founded and operated by volunteers who passionately believe in the need to change the current situation regarding environmental sensitivities (EH). It is unacceptable for us to see these people suffering and to do nothing to help them.
Our sense of compassion is constantly challenged when, on a daily basis, we are confronted with suffering and illnesses that are inadequately treated. The result is the loss of employment, place of residence, family and support group. We witness deplorable situations on a daily basis: people who are misunderstood and marginalized because they have lost their tolerance to the chemicals in the myriad of everyday products or because they can no longer tolerate mould, electromagnetic radiation, etc.
Despite this, we are continually amazed by the ingenuity with which our members face the most challenging situations.
It is the energy of these people that drives the group forward.
Our goals are to have EH recognized and to obtain appropriate treatment and social services for these people in Quebec.
