IN THE HOUSE on C-81, An Act to ensure a barrier free Canada

Context : Questions and Comments

Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker,

I would like to say hello to members of the deaf community who are here today.

There is much that needs to be improved in this bill. My colleague from Windsor—Tecumseh spoke earlier about enforcement. That is the key: that this become something far more than symbolic, but allows for full accessibility.

I do not believe the minister adequately responded to the question from the member for Windsor—Tecumseh. How is the government going to guarantee enforcement and make sure that rights enabled through this legislation are actually put into place?
