Dear Mr. Lepofsky:
Thank you for your
letter dated September 19th regarding my earlier
invitation to arrange a meeting. Please be assured that no apology
for any delay is needed.
As indicated in my
letter of June 27th, it was a pleasure to speak
with you, Mr. Malkowski and Ms. Riback about the need for
disability legislation, and I look forward to meeting again to
discuss further details about some of the points that were raised
at that meeting.
Thank you, as well,
for enclosing a copy of your letter to my
colleagues in the legislature and the attached brief submitted by
the Ontarians with Disabilities Act Committee dated April 22, 1998.
I have, of course, already studied in detail the thoughtful brief
submitted by your committee, and know that my colleagues will
appreciate the valuable background that your material
I look forward to
your support of the proposed disability
legislation that will be introduced this fall.
Thank you again for
