*oin the National Debate on Disability Issues*

Canadians with disabilities are far too often an afterthought of
politicians and government. During the last federal election, no question
was asked during the leaders debates about persons with disabilities or
about creating a more accessible Canada. As a result, the community has
taken it upon themselves to host a national and accessible debate, focused
exclusively on people with disabilities.

A coalition of over 25 disability organizations are calling on the major
political parties to attend a national election debate on disability
issues. Organized by the Pan-Canadian Disability Coalition on September 7,
and moderated by political commentator Craig Oliver, this debate will give
the major political parties the opportunity to share their vision and
platform for the nearly 6.2 million Canadians with disabilities.
