CBC to Portray a Conservative as Something Other Than Scary

Conservative Health Critic Steven Fletcher will be featured on the CBC’s Moving On program Sunday, June 26th at 2:00 pm.

Moving On is a documentary program about people with disabilities who are developing ways to live more independently. The people seen in the program are neither victims nor heroes, but human beings striving to lead as full a life as possible. Moving On depicts people with disabilities at work, receiving healthcare, using and developing technology, forging relationships, producing art and entertainment and playing sports. In the process, the program challenges stereotypes and provides useful information about disability issues.

Steven Fletcher is an MP from Winnipeg who was left a paraplegic when his car crashed into a deer. He won his seat in the 2004 federal election beating out a very popular Winnipeg Mayor named Glenn Murray.

When you consider that the CBC cannot portray a Conservative as anything other than scary, this special on Steven should be interesting.
