Two items of importance for today's update:
* We have learned that on the province-wide TV Ontario Program "Studio 2" will be an item on disability access issues. It is currently going to air for about six minutes on Thursday, June 14, at 8 p.m. and is repeated at 11 p.m. and then the next day, Friday, June 15, 2001 at 2 p.m. This slotting of this item is subject to change. The ODA will be specifically mentioned. The genesis of this item was the long para-transit strike in Ottawa.
* See the announcement below about the Thursday, June 21 All-Candidates' Debate during the Vaughan King Aurora by-election, in which the ODA will be emphasized.
The York Region disABILITY Network invites persons with disabilities and their community to join us THURSDAY JUNE 21st at 8 pm for the Aurora Town Hall All Candidates Meeting!
We intend to make the Ontarians with Disabilities Act a prominent issue in this regions by-election.
The meeting will be held at 100 John West Way in Aurora. We will be assembling in the parking lot at 7:30 to distribute brochures and assist people into the meeting. Transportation may be arranged by car pooling with some of our volunteers.
