[OPIRG-EVENTS] Chretien Defence Against the Sue Clark Chaining
Dear Enlightened Electorate:
Chretien defended himself about the Sue Clark's accusaton about no
vocational rehabiliation help for the disabled left. Rex Murphy interviewed
Chretien on Friday and Chretien said, we are doing a lot of good things for
the disabled with HRDC money. (This is the first time to our knowledge that
a public statement about he disabled has been made in this election.)
Chretien said he visited a program the other day that was helping disabled
with training so they might be able to get a job someday. THEN HE SAID THEY
WERE BEING SHOWEN HOW TO MAKE SKIES AND SKI POLES. And that it warmed his
heart to see these people who are very disabled doing work. Fortunately
this will enrage the community of persons with disabilities because this is
not voc. rehab. this is WORKFARE the only so called help left. No basic or
post secondary and no real skills training. All low end entry level work
with no renumeration. And it is very very doubtful they will ever be hired
because a) the government does not protect from discrimination any longer
and b) what call for hiring would there be in an industry that has access
to free staff doing the work on workfare.
