Send a question to CBC Radio's Ontario Today program by fax or email by the end of Monday May 17, to raise the ODA issue with the three party leaders at an upcoming on-air radio debate between them. Write the question in your own words.
You are encouraged to make it even-handed enough that it can be selected, without losing the force of the issue. For example, one approach might be to ask each leader to comment on their record for keeping promises to Ontarians with disabilities to remove barriers facing them, and to tell us what commitments they are prepared to make to pass a strong law to get us a barrier-free Ontario if they are elected. In your preamble, you should consider giving examples about barriers you experience or know about.
The more people that send in questions on this topic, the more likely the CBC is to select one of them! They do not list the Email address to use, but I think it is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can check the CBC web site to be sure.
Here is the CBC web posting which invites your questions:
CBC RADIO on-air Forum
OTTAWA - CBC Radio One's Ontario Today is soliciting participation from listeners across the province for a candidates' forum to be recorded on the evening of Wednesday May 26.
We'll be linking our studios in Thunder Bay, Sudbury, Windsor, Ottawa and Toronto, so that people can ask their question of representatives of the three parties in the legislature, who will be in the Toronto studio.
In order to get a broad cross-section of voters, regions and issues, we're asking that you submit your questions in advance. Participants will be asked to come to the studio closest to them between 7 and 9 PM on May 26. Submit your question, and a brief preamble, if you wish, by fax (613-562-8814) or e-mail by Monday May 17.
Portions of the forum will be broadcast on Ontario Today on subsequent days. Ontario Today is heard between noon and 2:00 PM on CBC Radio One, across the province.
