Storyboard Text

  • Supreme Court of Canada
  • October 19 1997
  • The Charter of Rights and freedoms mentions that all people who are hearing impaired should have free access to the same medical care, as people who aren't.
  • Supreme Court of Canada
  • People who are hearing impaired should be able to have “equal benefit of the law without discrimination” as said in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
  • Governments should treat the disadvantaged members of society eqaual to the general population by providing them with the same benefits.
  • It's crazy to think that in 1991, 30% of the disabled population aged 15 and over had a hearing disability.
  • Its about time somebody did something about this.
  • Thank you Western Institute Hard of Hearing who are working to provide my family and many others with doctors who can speak sign language.
  • I'm truly sorry that I have to deliver this message to you...but unfortunately the British Columbia government refused to provide funding from the WIDHH, which means that there is not an alternite alternative for this issue.
  • What you are saying right now violates the Charter Of Rights and Freedoms. It is completely brutal and unfair behavior.
  • I hope you will continue to encourage the government to help in this case.
  • We will grant you a declaration and hopefully after six months the government can rethink their decision.
