Your Opinion Matters


your opinion matters

On Monday, March 11, 2013 – CACL posted our positive reaction in a media advisory to the Alberta government's announcement of the imminent closure of the Michener Centre. Which you can read here. For those who don't know, the Michener is a residential facility for people with developmental disabilities located in Red Deer, Alberta. The closure of the Michener will enable the remaining 125 residents to return to community. There has been some opposition to this closure and The Alberta Association for Community Living is addressing it with "A Call to Ensure Your Voice is Heard", asking people to support the return to Community by having this the last of the largest of Alberta's institutions closed as planned. Please take a moment and read this call to action and take the time to let the Premier of Alberta and the MLAs know how you feel by following the links in the message which you can find here on the Alberta Association for Community Living's website.
There has been much discussion about this closure in the news to get some deeper insite into it you can also read Bruce Uditsky's Op-Ed piece in the Calgary Herald
