Dear Mr. Lepofsky:

Thank you for attending our most recent meeting on October 25. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. It is always a pleasure to exchange views with you and to discuss matters of mutual importance.

I am fully supportive of public hearings on the proposed Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001, and am confident that the Clerk of the Standina Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs has made every effort that notice will be effectively provided.

Toronto on December 4th & 5th

Sudbury on December 7th

If you wish to make a presentation in person at the public hearings, you should contact the Clerk of the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs at the following address:
