On Open Line a few days ago, (I missed the last name, first name was Dave) CLAIMED that the government NEVER had any intentions of closing this program down and the whole thing was simply a lack of understanding and mus-communication.

I have respect for Gerry Rogers in her efforts to and success in retaining the ABE program for persons with mental illness. She at least understands that interventions for the mentally ill are not about numbers of registrants and graduates, unlike Joan Shea and Kathy Dunderdale. It is about meeting the needs of our citizens who live with complicated and complex challenges. I know for a fact that Joan Shea lacks the compassion to make decisions in the best interests of persons with mental illness. She operates at the level of self interest only. So whether she is found and asked to make a statement on the Waterford ABE program, or not, and whether such statement is one of political recovery or face saving, Joan Shea is not capable of being "responsible for the status of persons with disabilities".

This is a great decision and something that these people need and deserve. We as a society can and should have programs like this for our citizens. I hope that the minister and her department don't feel that it is necessary to make some stupid changes so that they can save face. Admit that this program works and it should stay (period).
