Civil rights for special needs

On this episode of The Panel, we highlight the Disabilities (Solomon Webster) Bill – a first for the country in terms of protecting those who have special needs.
For too long, we have sat back and forgotten the most vulnerable in our community. There was time in this country, that we shut in those who had mental and physical disabilities, effectively cutting them off from the outside.

Slowly, we are making steps to bring them out into the light to include them in our everyday life. But many argue, still not enough has been done.

Councillor Roy McTaggart and Senior Policy Advisor Shari Smith discuss.
