The right to dignity for all is explicitly recognized in Canadian law; in practice a variety of individuals and groups have been excluded from the concern and respect that their nature as persons demands. Prominent among these excluded groups are… members of the disabled community, who are marginalized by a society that regularly neglects to recognize their needs, capacities, and merits as individuals. Shannon identifies the social and attitudinal barriers still present in Canadian society today, and cites the factors needed to reverse the process of exclusion. 2007.
