EDMONTON — The Wildrose Alliance Party says the Alberta government is quietly trying to cut programs for the disabled to save money.
Member of the legislature Paul Hinman says 16 groups have received notices of funding cuts.
The groups affected include the Alberta Association for Community Living.
Wendy McDonald, president of the association, says the Stelmach government is going after the most vulnerable people in Alberta and their families.
Hinman says other groups facing funding cuts include People with Developmental Disabilities, Calgary Society for People with Disabilities and the Developmental Disabilities Resource Centre.
Officials with Alberta’s Seniors and Community Supports Department could not immediately be reached for comment.
