|Another institution closes: A good day to be Canadian -- Courtesy of Abilities Magazine -- At the end of February, the Government of Saskatchewan announced the closure of
Valley View Centre in Moose Jaw. Valley View Centre is an institution that has
housed thousands of people with intellectual disabilities over the past 50
years, and still houses more than 200 people. The closure of Valley View marks
the end of a dark period for persons with intellectual disabilities. "It is a
great day to be Canadian," says Shane Haddad, President of People First of
Canada (PFC). "I am so proud to have been part of the work and education it took
to free people from this institution. I commend the Saskatchewan government for
doing the right thing for the people who live and have lived in Valley View
Centre. I am so proud my province is moving forward." To read the full press
release, visit the Canadian Association for Community Living's Website, here. To
