Minister Hoskins’ First Major Speech on Disability Accessibility in the Ontario Legislature and Responses in Question Period – Some News is Encouraging and Some is Not

The Minister had invited some from the disability community to be present for his statement. From his speech, it appears that a handful attended. American Sign Language interpretation was provided for those speeches. Because the Minister’s office issued its invitation under 24 hours before these speeches, people needing accessible transit may not have been able to arrange to attend on such short notice.
