Justice committee  I think what's really clear is that there aren't enough social protections for vulnerable Canadians, including people with disabilities, and the reality is that this legislation is an aspirational piece of legislation. While I understand that some people believe this is towards e

Justice committee  Thank you for assigning me a doctor's degree. That's wonderful. I appreciate that very much.

Justice committee  I will be very blunt. Mr. Fletcher is not an expert in this area. He is a white male who is involved in other work but is not an advocate for people with disabilities and has no history of looking at the research, the situation. I think many of the points raised by the panellists

Justice committee  Thank you, Madam Chair and members of the committee. Greetings to other panel members. Thank you for inviting me to appear today. I am speaking from the unceded territory of the Kanyen'kehà:ka people. I remind us that truth and reconciliation is not about words; it is about how

Justice committee  I'm going to again come back to the D.A.I. decision, which centred on the idea that a woman with an intellectual disability is telling the truth, and if she's telling the truth it's not....

Justice committee  I'm just trying to get to the point. I apologize for answering in English. It's to get to the point where it is fundamental from the D.A.I. decision that the woman's right to be believed has to be centred. This is absolutely at the centre of why I think this training is import

Justice committee  It's again a reminder about how you communicate—what Karine was saying about how you communicate. Understanding that individual accommodation is something that really needs to be ingrained in the way the training is set up, so that it's understood that it's different and it's ind

Justice committee  I'll just go back to what I said in my opening remarks regarding the ethical principles for judges and the idea—going back to McLachlin in 2004 citing Eldridge—that if Eldridge is there to remind judges, then I think it's really clear. I would really agree with what she has alr

Bonnie Brayton

Justice committee  I'm going to say something, and I'll turn it over to Karine. The point I was making before was that when we look at the missing and murdered women inquiry, again, the disability lens was not added. The consequence of that was that one of the root causes was missed in something t

Justice committee  The D.A.I decision we referred to is one of the ones that really impacts.... Sorry.

Bonnie Brayton

Justice committee  It's also important to remember, around the myths and stereotypes, some of the things I mentioned before like the notion of hyper-sexualization. These things are used to try to shape that there was consent, as opposed to there not being consent. That's really important to underst

Bonnie Brayton

Justice committee  Part of curriculum is intersectional and fulsome, yes, but it really needs to have that fulsome understanding of victims' needs.

Justice committee  Everyone calls us DAWN.

March 12th, 2020Committee meeting

Bonnie Brayton

Justice committee  I'd have to say, based on an intersectional understanding of people, especially in the context of this discussion, that would depend on what her disability is. What we need to think about, of course, is accommodation and understanding what issue is important for somebody. There c
