Motions on Persons Living With Disabilities

I am excited to announce the tabling of the following two motions in the House, both of which go directly to the core of the NDP's advocacy on behalf of persons living with disabilities:

M-54 — May 2, 2016 — Ms. Hardcastle (Windsor—Tecumseh) — That, in the opinion of the House, the government should immediately sign, ratify, and implement the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in its entirety, with no reservations.

M-56 — May 2, 2016 — Ms. Hardcastle (Windsor—Tecumseh) — That, in the opinion of the House, the government should use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as the blueprint for its announced Canadians with Disabilities Act, and that said Act shall serve as implementation legislation for the Convention within Canada.
