Canadian Federal Parliament

Great statement

Rob Oliphant Don Valley West, ON
Mr. Speaker, I am proud to rise in the House today to commend March of Dimes Canada and recognize next Thursday, February 24, as March of Dimes Conductive Education Day.
March of Dimes, headquartered in Don Valley West, has been delivering programs and services to Canadians with disabilities since 1951. This is its 60th anniversary of working to improve the lives and livelihoods of Canadians with disabilities, advancing accessibility and creating a society inclusive of people with disabilities.
Conductive education is an innovative learning system that maximizes the independence and mobility of children and adults with neurological motor disorders like cerebral palsy, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis and those who have had a stroke or brain injury. The conductive education program has the potential to make a life-changing impact on the mobility and independence of close to nine million people in North America.
I ask all members to please join me in congratulating March of Dimes Canada and recognizing and supporting the conductive education program, a cornerstone of our ongoing efforts in Canada to achieve full inclusion of Canadians with disabilities.

Great awareness

Great wording, that hits just the right buttons: '...inclusive... learning system... potential ... life-changing...' You can't get much more psycho-social than that.
 
Such members' statements are allowed just one miniute. Try to do better, it's a good exercise.
 
Congratulations, March of Dimes Canada
 
Congratulations and thanks,  Mr Oliphant.
