Dear Minister:

Re: Ontarians with Disabilities Act

In his July 28, 2000 letter to me, your assistant Ronald Bowers stated on your behalf that "For your information, Minister Johns has never committed to tabling an Action Plan before the end of June, 2000. In fact, Minister Johns has always been consistent in her comments regarding the Action Plan, and she is committed to a timetable which is governed by this current session of the House."

When you appeared on the London area "New PL" TV station's "Inquiry" program along with MPP Steve Peters and 2 others, which aired on Saturday, March 25, 2000, you clearly stated: "We agreed we'd put an action plan forward by June." We have a video tape of this program. Yet, you have not brought forward an action plan by June, as you had said you would.


David Lepofsky, C.M.
