The New Year brought a small victory for a St. Theresa Point family.
Kevin Taylor found out on New Year's Day that a complaint he filed to the Canadian Human Rights Commission had been accepted to move on to a tribunal.
The 32-year-old filed the complaint in 2010 citing the inadequate health care for disabled people on First Nations is discrimination.
Taylor has cerebral palsy and has limited speech and walks with crutches.
He lives in a small house with his mother, father, and two brothers. The family just got running water last year.
"It was so overwhelming in a way because I never thought I would get this far," says Alice Taylor, who is Kevin's mother. "
Alice Taylor says Kevin only gets home care once a week. He is taken to the nursing station for a bath because it is properly equipped for a person with mobility issues.
Kevin needs physiotherapy and speech therapy, but those services are not available in the remote community.
"He needs help, like every other special needs person," says Alice Taylor. "I just want him to stay in his home."
