It's great to read on today's International Day of Persons with Disabilities #IDPD2019 that so many British Columbians (6,300+) have shared their experiences, perspectives, ideas and feedback on proposed #accessibility legislation for B.C. during the recent government consultation.
“I thank everyone who took the time to share their views and experiences,” said Shane Simpson, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction. “We undertook public consultation with the United Nations principle of ‘nothing about us, without us.’ We heard overwhelmingly about the need for accessibility legislation to enhance education and awareness and the importance of creating a culture of inclusion, as well as eliminating barriers for all British Columbians.”
"Today, December 3, marks United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This annual celebration is a time for all of us across British Columbia to recognize the important contributions people with developmental disabilities make to their communities.
The U.N. has declared the theme for this year: Promoting the participation of persons with disabilities and their leadership.
I’m proud to see many examples of participation and leadership in our province," says CLBC CEO Ross Chilton on #IDPD2019.
