But no actual disabled people. Revealing, I think.

What is revealing is that you believe disabled people only come in wheelchairs or with a cane. You make an assumption about what you see and that is the biggest barrier people with disabilities face. The vast majority of people with disabilities have invisible disabilities.

Is Daryl Campbell the SCC President or the Interim? I wasn't aware they were done with their search for a new President.
