Premier Greg Selinger delivered Manitoba’s Throne Speech and the issues we have been raising with the Province are absent in their promises and plans. Though he did reference modernizing supports to people facing employment disadvantages due to a disability, his main focus is on infrastructure, child care spots and a number of health-related initiatives. Our sector continues to be left vulnerable. Thinking glass half full; the Throne Speech highlights the critical nature of the public awareness campaign Disability Matters: Vote 2016. Let’s move towards a brighter future together. Plan to attend the launch of Disability Matter’s: 2016 December 3 at 11am in the Rotunda of the Manitoba Legislative Building.
