Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON - BY CAPE BRETON POST STAFF

Nova Sco­tians will have the op­por­tu­nity to present by video con­fer­ence to the Law Amend­ments Com­mit­tee on Bill 59, an act re­spect­ing ac­ces­si­bil­ity in the prov­ince, on Feb. 14.

The con­fer­ence will be set up at 11 dif­fer­ent Nova Sco­tia Com­mu­nity Col­lege lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing Syd­ney and Port Hawkes­bury, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The Syd­ney ses­sion will be held at Mar­coni Cam­pus in room C306, while the Port Hawkes­bury con­fer­ence will be at the Strait Area Cam­pus in room 228.

Mar­cie Sh­w­ery-Stan­ley, a long­time ad­vo­cate for those with dis­abil­i­ties, said it’s im­por­tant to have these ses­sions.

“I think with the tech­nol­ogy we have, and the com­mu­ni­ca­tions we have, these ses­sions are doable,” she said. “I think that it’s im­por­tant that the is­sues from out­side of HRM (Halifax Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity) are heard, if not, they will never be acted upon.”

Those in­ter­ested in get­ting on the list of pre­sen­ters for the video con­fer­ence must reg­is­ter by Feb. 9.
