We, the undersigned, members of the community of disabled Canadians, call upon the House of Commons to:
1. Consider the implementation of a temporary top up benefit, a Disability Emergency Response Benefit or DERB, to be immediately provided to help all those currently eligible for any disability benefit program, until the Canada Disability Benefit is being distributed; and
2. Consider DERB to fill the gaps and make a difference in the many lives desperately needing support now.
