Dear Mr. Lepofsky:

I am writing to thank you for sending me a copy of the brief which the Ontarians with Disabilities Act Committee submitted to the Standing Committee On Social Development for the hearings, which the Coimmittee conducted recently on government funding of programs and services for persons with disabilities.

This government remains firm in its commitment to removing barriers to participation in the social mainstream faced by persons with disabilities. Work is underway on the development of an overall disability strategy.

Thank you once again for the copy of your Committee's brief to the Standing Committee on Social Development. Sincerely,

Marilyn Mushinski
