"Righting" Wrongs....

This is a public service announcement.

It has nothing to do with my children, but has EVERYTHING to do with thousands of other people's sons and daughters. As a mother, a daughter, a CANADIAN, I post this here, wishing I could shout it from rooftops, instead.

Please. Read this, and pass it on:

The class action against the government on behalf of the many who were so badly treated at Rideau Regional Centre continues. The lawyers are looking for people to come forward to provide evidence to help get approval from the court for the case against Rideau Regional Centre to proceed. In particular the lawyers are looking for people (former residents, family members or former employees) who might be able to speak about the institution during the period between 1993-2009. That is why Community Living Ontario is sending out this message. 

Do you know of any people who lived or worked at Rideau Regional Centre between 1993-2009?

Please try to find as many people as you can to make sure we have enough to support this action. There is strength in numbers! We strongly believe that institutions have been detrimental for people who have been labelled. This is one way that those persons' voices will be heard!
