Liberal Party Announces It Will Hold an
Open, Public Consultation on the ODA
Date: Monday, January 31, 2000 10:51 PM
Over the next months, Ontarians with disabilities will finally get an opportunity to participate in a public process where they can have their say on what should be included in a strong and effective Ontarians with Disabilities Act. At a public forum in London on the Ontarians with Disabilities Act convened by the ODA Committee's London Region on January 31, 2000, Liberal Disabilities Critic M.P.P. Steve Peters announced that he and the Liberal Party will hold an open, public consultation process on the Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
We regret that the Ontario Government has not been prepared to do this. However, the initiative that Mr. Peters announced will provide Ontarians with disabilities, as well as their friends and families with an opportunity to share their views in a public process, and to bring this important issue to the public's attention.
When we have further details, such as the locations and times when Mr. Peters' events will be occuring, and how people can get involved and participate, we will be passing them along. In the meantime, Steve Peters' office at Queens Park can be reached at:
