The purpose of this Act is to achieve a barrier-free Canada for people with disabilities, and to give people the equal opportunity to fully and meaningfully participate in all aspects of Canadian life. A platform promise was made by this Liberal Government during the election. Please review this communication from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities: http://pm.gc.ca/eng/ministerial-mandate-letters I want the Liberals to keep their promise and I would like you to help them do so. I encourage you to request the Prime Minister to announce the development of a Canadians with Disabilities Act during the Throne Speech on December 4th. Nothing would make me prouder as a Canadian than to have this important legislation enacted by July 1st, 2017, on Canada's birthday. Do you support this plan and will you be a champion in Parliament to ensure this goal is achieved? I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Input the text of your message here.
