Put an End to Disrespectiful Service / Realize the Right to Equality

Dear VIRN Community:

How much longer will tens of thousands of Manitobans with disabilities have to put up with second or third class service or no service at all?

It's our last chance to ensure that the Minister gets it 'right'! True, the latest draft regulation is an improvement from what was proposed back in the spring 2014. But, after more than a year of work, it is still not nearly good enough.
