The written submission follows BCACL's presentation to the Committee on September 15, 2008. We would like to thank all of the individuals and groups who made a personal, written or survey presentation to the Committee. We hope the Committee will hear our concerns and write a report that reflects the critical need of a financial investment towards eliminating waitlists.
