I was diagnosed with autism at the age of three and have found the benefits of Disabled Students Allowance helpful. There are a lot of other students at my university also have some form of disability; whether it's physical, mental or a learning difficulty like mine. If the government plan to take these sorts of benefits away from those who are truly disabled then that is disgraceful. It's awful that they are considering taking benefits away from those who need it most.

I have had MS for 12 years. I am an RN with a master's Degree in Nursing, Since a Bad exacerbation August 1, 2008 i have been unable to work. I am walker dependent after years of Physical therapy and cognitive problems still are everywhere. Fatigue is an understatement. My SSDI is $1500 a month and i have to pay a $478 cost share to medacaid to help with medical bills....so I live off about $1000 a month. If my benefits go down I will end up a ward of the state...

I am a lady who suffers from a very rare medical problem which causes dwarfism. I have arthritis in ALL of my joints caused by my medical problem. Because I am a dwarf I cannot get ANY surgery whatsoever because I was told it would be too dangerous for me to do so. All I can look forward to is pain and more pain with only painkillers for relief. Now I am to be stripped of my benefits and my dignity as well for something that I CANNOT CONTROL! Please folks lets not get carried away in a...

Please folks lets not get carried away in a Witch Hunt here because it could cost innocent lives. Some disabled people will end up taking their own lives because they do not see a honourable way out for them or their disability. So please folks please be careful what you wish for because an accident or illness can happen to ANYONE?

I am a wheelchair user after breaking my back in a motorcycle accident. You can't take this money away from people who need it! Focus on the millions who don't need it and are getting away with it!

Born legally blind as a preemie in the 50s I attended regular public and high school and finally got my BA and B.Ed. However I had to go on ODSP after becoming ill with Ulcerative colitisan many other illnesses. To get it I had to gut my RRSPs I'd earned. People with disabilities don't earn much money as it is and if severe cuts are made it'll be like the government is trying to kill us all off to save money. Don't let them.
