nothing about us without us sign now

In signing this petition I ask that you repeal Bill 20, section 15, part 6, passed in the legislature on November 18. This section of the bill removes the legislated requirement in the Community Living Authority Act that people with developmental disabilities and their family members are represented on the Board of Directors of Community Living BC (CLBC), the Crown Agency that administers supports and services to people with developmental disabilities.

I believe that:

- People with developmental disabilities and their families have the right to make decisions that affect their lives.
- People with developmental disabilities and their families are the experts in their own lives.
- Representation on the CLBC Board by the people it serves is key to improving its leadership, stewardship and direction.
- Having representation on a non-decision making advisory committee is not enough.
- This action by your government is a betrayal of the principles on which CLBC was founded.

People with developmental disabilities and families must be guaranteed through legislation a place on the CLBC Board of Directors.

We ask that you repeal the changes made to the Community Living Authority Act.

    Premier Gordon Campbell, do the right thing and repeal Bill 20. Uphold the founding principals in the CLBC that you and your government agreed to support! Parents and caregivers of these children deserve and need a place on the board.

    It is appalling to me that any government elected to represent the people would even consider voting in a bill that takes away the rights of the most vulnerable of those same people.

    It is very important that those being served or assisted have a say in what best serves their needs. Who else other than their families can really know what is best for them? It has never worked for someone to declare themselves tha expert for another's l
