Ottawa ACORN Members on Disability Rights

Please view Ottawa ACORN's new ODSP Video. Does Yasir Naqvi MPP refute or confirm my statements? The Social Benefits Tribunal expelled me from ODSP & demanded I repay $15+k when I tried to speak truth to power and tell the SBT the ODSP Act discriminates against disabled people. I was punished because I am a whistle blower. I was wrongly convicted. Please immediately grant me a reconsideration hearing & fully retroactively reinstate my ODSP interim assistance.
