(Toronto, Ontario) The Disability Channel & Ontario Political Parties Come Together.

TDC is a grass roots channel by and for persons with disabilities showcasing abilities on Television.

We were honored to have been able to coordinate Ontario's four Political Parties on the same show

called 'NEWSHOUR' with anchor Jay Stoyan focusing on disability issues.

Each Party led by the Ontario Green Party and its leader Mike Schreiner, whom also conducts a monthly

segment on our platform combining disability policies and human rights issues. Joining Mike as guest on

'TDC' were Progressive Conservative 'PC' MPP Bill Walker, NDP MPP Teresa Armstrong and a statement

forwarded by Liberal MPP Tracy MacCharles (see statement to follow).

The together moment happened live on August 29th with the focus of introducing Party representatives

and disability platform policies, getting to know each individual on a personal level and talking the

future when it comes to improving the lives of persons with disabilities.

TDC was very proud being able to organize and further put 'people in motion' for the common

good...improving our disability community in their daily lives. During the episode the conversation

evolved around care-giving, budgets, awareness and so much more... https://youtu.be/GrT24QHDg2Q

We at 'TDC' feel it's important to extend this platform to our Politicians and work together as opposed

to finger pointing, blaming and one sided interviews that do not serve either side.

Watch for this important step leading to more interaction on our dial and further getting the community

involved, along with leadership and kindness from our leaders.

Please see the Ontario Liberal attachment document below;

“I'm honored to be appointed first Ministry of Accessibility. There is much more to be done. We define

an accessible Ontario as one where every individual who lives on or visits Ontario can participate in

Society. The accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities Act sets the framework for and enforcement of

accessibility standards which organizations need to follow to remove barriers for people with

disabilities. These standards are being phased in, allowing organizations time to build and budget them

into regular business planning cycles. Compliance will lead to greater accessibility. That will result in

significant economic opportunities for Ontarians from greater participation in the workforce to the

creation of a new untapped talent pool and consumer market.”

Minister Responsible for Women's Issues
