Reverse cuts to PDD in Alberta

5,259 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The PC government’s 2013 budget cut $42 million dollars in funding from community access programs for persons with developmental disabilities.

This government is being shamelessly dishonest when it tells families of disabled Albertans that outcomes for their loved ones can be improved by cutting $42 million dollars in supports. These cuts mean that not only will many Albertans with disabilities lose support to attend community programs, but many will lose essential services.

We, the undersigned, petition the PC Government to immediately reverse these harmful cuts to PDD programs.

    They should be ashamed. Their actions are inhuman. Cutting essential services services to the most vulnerable is a cowardly act.

    Some people with Asperger's syndrome need support by means of counselling and psychiatric assistance. However, with community and medical support, they can be hard working, productive individuals who hold down full time employment and pay income tax. Treating such patients as second class citizens in Canada is appalling and "criminal". Cutting funding to these individuals will cost a lot more than $42M in the long run if they are unemployed and pay no income tax on zero earnings. This government is so short sighted. Shame!!
