What we think of the changes to AISH, Bill 21
December 3rd, 2019 is International Day of Disabled Persons.
It is a day to celebrate around the world our differences and diversity.
This week we will be sharing our thoughts on changes to policy that do not include us. In fact, a policy that makes it that much harder to be part of society.
On November 27 Bill 21 passed at the Alberta Government.
This Bill included changes to AISH.
Changes that we were not asked about.
Here is what we have to say when AISH no longer keeps pace with the cost of living.
Bill 21 moves the AISH Act into regulations. This mean the Alberta Lieutenant Governor now has the power to make changes with a pen, no longer needed to bring and changes back into debate at the Alberta Legislature.
It comes into affect December 31st, 2019.
We hope the Alberta Lieutenant Governor watches the video and listens to Albertans.
