Testimony to HUMA (Parliament of Canada) Generates Controversy


April 16, 2013

I testified to The Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities where “Pursuant to Standing Order 108(3)d) and the motion adopted by the Committee on Thursday, January 31, 2013, the Committee resumed its study of exploring employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.” It turned into a fairly exciting experience when one of the members raised a “point of order” as a result of one of my responses to a question. Listen for yourself: innuendo, or just telling the truth?
