Vicky Levack is with the Disability Rights Coalition. They are the among sixty groups and individuals who have written an open letter asking the Premier to end discrimination against persons with disabilities. It is also calling for him to implement the Court of Appeal October 6 ruling as well as abandoning an application to the Supreme Court of Canada to dismiss the ruling. They want the government to negotiate a systemic human rights remedy to the problem of discrimination against people with disabilities in accessing social assistance, and end the funding cap which singles out the disabled and creates barriers to their inclusion in our communities. Levack says it feels like they are fighting the government, when they want to work with them to help people like her survive and thrive.
