Congratulations to all of you. The vote in the House of Commons passed unanimously. Once Bill C-81 has Royal Assent we will have an Accessible Canada Act.
Minister Qualtrough writes to say that the government intends to accept all of the amendments made by the Senate and the Bill C-81 debate in the House of Commons will take place next week coinciding with National AccessAbility Week.
Send a letter to all the Members of Parliament telling them you want Bill C-81 passed. You want an Accessible Canada Act before the next election.
On May 13th, 2019, the Senate passed 3rd reading of Bill C-81. The Social Affairs, Science and Technology Senate Standing Committee has recommended the following amendments to strengthen Bill C-81. We did not get all the changes we asked for, but the changes are pretty good.
