Simple Suggestion #166... Stand with the vulnerable

After having coffee and a special morning prayer with my friends in the L'Arche Day Program this morning, I've decided to post some rally information. Our brothers and sisters with disabilities are in danger of losing the supports they need in order to live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives. So I know what I'm doing on Friday at noon -- standing with my L'Arche friends at a rally. Come join us! And contact your MLA to ask his/her help for those with disabilities. I just sent an email to mine, asking him to find better ways to deal with Alberta's deficit than cutting funding to the most vulnerable...

THE ALBERTA GOVERNMENT'S CUTS 
TO THE DISABLED ARE
TOO BIG
TOO FAST
TOO SOON
$42,000,000 WILL BE CUT 
FROM SERVICES FOR DISABLED ALBERTANS
BEGINNING ON CANADA DAY
THIS TIMELINE IS UNACCEPTABLE AND DANGEROUS 
TO ALBERTA'S MOST VULNERABLE POPULATION
RALLY:
FRIDAY, MAY 31st 2013
ALBERTA LEGISLATURE 
12 NOON
