Lets Talk Disability Politics Meeting Mighty People

Meet Brittny Anderson,  Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Nelson/Creston, and Parliamentary Secretary for Accessibility and  MLA of Chilliwack, Dan Coulter.  This was an exciting episode because it gave me a glimpse into politics and understanding laws, both old and new, around disability rights, accessibility and funding models.  Here is the amazing story: One day, I was really fed up with the way people with disabilities and funding models were being distributed. So I decided to write a letter to Brittny Anderson and we eventually met in Creston at the farmer's market July 2022. In the discussion I got more information on the new funding model that is in the works. I then invited her onto my podcast so that she could talk about this new funding model and other new laws around accessibility so that other can learn about it. Brittny thought it was a good idea and invited Dan Coulter, who also has a disability, to the interview. Having first-hand experience living with a disability, Dan is passionate about creating an accessible province. This was a great interview, and I so pleased with how this interview turned out because it allowed me to give Brittny and Dan my perspective on living with Cerebral Palsy in a small community. I am hopeful that I will get to work with them in some capacity in the future. — Send in a voice message:
