Disability Filibuster 2022

We are a grassroots network of disability activists across Canada.  One year ago, in 2021, we produced a ROUND THE CLOCK  Zoom broadcast , featuring the diverse voices, art, scholarship, thoughts and lived reality of people with disabilities from coast-to-coast-to-coast.   

To make this broadcast 100% accessible, donors like you enabled us to pay ASL/LSQ interpreters, translators, tech professionals and other enabling folks to help us produce a DISABILITY FILIBUSTER AGAINST BILL C-7.   And the fight continues.  Bill C7 's Track 2  now provides disabled people with "special" or "privileged" access to a medically assisted death even though we're not dying!  This is dangerous, discriminatory and wrong.  

Our message has been consistent:  We don't want assisted death, we want supported LIFE!

Our ultimate goal is to repeal this law and instead start funding the things we need to live a dignified life:  

    - community housing supports, 
    - income supports, including equitable COVID-19 relief
    - personal care supports; technology supports
    - education, employment and transportation supports
    - mental health services
    - pain management
    - suicide prevention measures
    - equal access to palliative care when we are, in fact, dying.  

Kill Bill C7's Track 2, not US!
