Dear Mr. Lepofsky,

On behalf of the Ontario Liberal Caucus let me once again thank you for the work that you and your organization are doing to improve the lives of people with disabilities here in Ontario.

While a previous commitment will prevent me from participating in the debate on Dwight Duncan's Private Member's Resolution, let there be no doubt that the Ontario Liberal Caucus is very supportive of the creation of an Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

As you know, I have personally called many times for Mike Harris to follow through on his campaign promise to introduce and pass such an Act. Having heard from my caucus colleagues who joined you at your meetings across the province, it is clear that Ontarians agree this legislation is important and long overdue.

If Mike Harris fails to live up to his commitment, a liberal government will act. We will pass an Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

I look forward to continuing to work with you to advance the interests of persons with disabilities in Ontario and I wish you the greatest possible success in that regard.

Yours truly,

Dalton McGuinty, MPP
Leader of the Official Opposition
Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party
