    God bless Justice Rosie Abella and the Canadian Supreme Court!

    An encouraging and uplifting story, Donna ~ thank you for sharing it with us.

    In the U.S., we've had federal law in place since the mid 1970's stipulating a "free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment" for students with special needs. Does Canada have a similar law?

    I just love reading Nick's thank you speech for his award. "... never give up and never give in." Nick, you are an inspiration!

    Love & Light,

    Rose
    Mom to Jon, 49, (seizure disorder; Gtube; trache; colostomy; osteoporosis; hypothyroid; enlarged prostate; lymphedema, assorted mysteries) and Michael, 32, (intractable seizures; Gtube), who were born with an undiagnosed progressive neuromuscular disease and courageous spirits. Our Angel Michael received his wings in 2003. Our Angel Jon received his wings April 2019. Now, they watch over Jim and me.

    Hi Rose, yes we have this but education is a provincial matter and some school districts simply deny having enough funds so shuffle off kids to other school districts or simply dump them into mainstream classes with no support. Anyway, this ruling stipulates that all school boards in the country can no longer cry poor in order to deny access to the curriculum. Hurray! And Nick's speech was all him - he was very proud of himself! xoDonna
