Letters to the Editor

Our hearts were broken yet again as another disability activist died on Monday, April 24.

Donal Toolan was only 50 and had given all his life to human rights, including disability rights.

He, like 18 other activists, departed us within the last five years. We grieve for them, knowing we must carry on their struggles to seek rights for people with a disability.
