Citizens With Disabilities - Ontario (CWDO) actively promotes the rights, freedoms and responsibilitie
Submission to the Special Committee on Electoral Reform By Chris Stark and Marie Stark
August 29, 2016
This is a submission from two voters who are blind. We have faced challenges and artificial barriers at polling stations in each Federal Election over the last 40 years, for no reason other than that we are blind. It is a given that voting for us has been more painful and hurtful than a root canal.
Response to Accessible Transportation Discussion Paper for Regulatory Modernization
By Chris Stark and Marie Stark
These few comments are made by two senior citizens who are blind and travel with guide dogs. They are based on our travel experiences over the years, but particularly during the past six years, following our retirement from work, and as our needs change with age and increased disabilities. During that time, we have primarily traveled by air for medical, visits to friends, and vacation reasons.
CWDO has developed a new, 5-year strategic plan. We need the active support of members like you to reach our goals.
Please read CWDO's strategic plan. Then respond to our survey to let us know how you'd like to be involved.
Together we are stronger.
CWDO has been actively engaged in promoting safeguards for people with disabilities when new legislation permitting physician-assisted suicide becomes law in the new year.
