AODA ALLIANCE URGES MCGUINTY GOVERNMENT TO FULLY COMPLY WITH THE AODA AND HONOUR DISABILITY ACCESSIBILITY ELECTION PROMISES
August 29, 2012
There are serious problems with how the McGuinty government is proposing to amend an important accessibility standard – an accessibility standard that took years to develop and was just enacted last year. What the Government proposes to do can undermine gains we made last year. It runs afoul of important guarantees for persons with disabilities in the AODA and in this Government’s earlier election commitments to us.

Our non-partisan disability coalition continues to spearhead a campaign to make elections in Ontario fully accessible to voters with disabilities. Ontario’s two upcoming by-elections provide another chance to try to make progress on this effort. The grassroots campaign for fully accessible elections in Ontario was first launched over 13 years ago by our predecessor, the Ontarians with Disabilities Act Committee.
If you are eligible to vote in the upcoming 2 Ontario By-Elections , we’ve compiled some relevant articles for you to view on how the McGuinty Government has dragged its feet on implementing the AODA so much so that we will not meet the 2025 deadline.

We urge everyone to do what you can to raise disability accessibility issues in the two upcoming Ontario by-elections. On Thursday, September 6, 2012 Ontario will be holding by-elections to fill vacancies in two seats in the Ontario Legislature. These are in the Kitchener-Waterloo riding, previously held by Conservative MPP Elizabeth Witmer, and the Vaughan riding, previously held by Liberal MPP Greg Sorbara.
