The Right Honourable Kent Hehr. He’s Canada’s new Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities.
As you can see, Kent is undoubtedly fit for the Persons with Disabilities Portfolio.
Persons who have experienced a permanent disability have, without any doubt in my mind, a much deeper understanding of the needs of disabled persons.
Kent’s handicap was the direct result of being shot by a couple of hoods with nothing better to do than shoot people.
That should serve as a reminder that any one of us who are presently in good health could find themselves severely handicapped within less than a minute of reading this.
Don’t quibble about tax money being spent on persons with disabilities. Such taxes are simply insurance premiums against the onset of our own disabilities.
