Mr. Speaker, Canadian organizations played a leadership role in drafting the new International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 13. Canada should have been the first country to ratify the convention.
But instead of ratifying this important convention, the government is dragging its heels. This is unbelievable.
Will the minister quit beating around the bush and act now to make Canada one of the first signatories to this historic document?
