    people with disabilities have much much to offer and with a little bit of knowledge and a little bit of awareness we can make tremendous change It doesn t have to be at great cost financially It is to sometimes simply knowing what to do how to offer service And so today I think is a historic day I know that whenever it happens that I no longer have the privilege of sitting here that I will look back at this legislation as something that was worth my time here It the legislation is going to benefit generations and generations and generations of Manitobans and I am so thankful that we will stand united today in this Chamber and give approval to third reading of this bill because I think today we are changing the world and those opportunities don t come along that often in this line of work Remarks by Mrs Leanne Rowat Riding Mountain And today being International Day of Persons With Disabilities I would like to indicate that members on this side of the House the Progressive Conservative caucus will continue to show their support for individuals with disabilities on this day and every day going forward Mr Speaker we believe this is a very very important initiative We know that this legislation is needed It could be stronger Now this legislation will be positive It ll provide education It ll provide information on the four principles that are going to be the framework for this legislation access equality universal design and systemic responsibility And I believe that there could have been one step further in that we could have attached timelines to this I know that this is something that the disability community had said they wanted to see was some type of commitment that would show accountability to the four areas of or the four principles of this bill and that would definitely have provided some assurances to the community that the government was going to be acting and acting in a timely manner So Mr Speaker Bill 26 is a step in the right direction We feel that there are a number of things that could be done to support or enhance this bill some accountability to timelines and ensuring that society does respond to the needs of persons with disabilities We ve looked at punitive action being taken and I think that the minister s assured me that you know education will be you know of what needs to be done will be done with businesses and families out there who are going to adhere to this legislation But I do believe that this legislation is going in the right direction and I want to congratulate the minister for taking this on and listening to the community I ve learned a lot through this process and I want to thank her and I want to thank the members in the gallery for their patience and wisdom in ensuring that this legislation can
