Father desperate to help his son rides from Toronto to Ottawa to meet Trudeau

The Toronto father of a child with an ultra rare disease will ride his bike this weekend from Pickering, Ont., to Ottawa in the hopes of meeting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ask for help with fundraising efforts to save his son.

His son is the only child in Canada with Spastic Paraplegia Type 50, a neurodegenerative disease that will rob him of all his functions, confining him to a wheelchair by the age of 10.

Caryn Lieberman reports on the father’s mission to raise awareness of this rare disease.

    Trudeau needs to allow those of us with life threatening disabilities, to have the income assistance we deserve. Being born & raised in Canada should give us priority over immigrants. No matter how long they have lived in Canada. We as Canadians with disabilities, need our country to help Us!!!!!. Its not like we're asking for $10 000 000 of taxpayers money to renovate our childhood homes. Only requesting the income support we need to stay alive, help with medical expenses, transportation to specialists & surgeons, to keep a roof over our family heads.

    Beware of the following DANGEROUS words,
    that the Chinese 🇨🇳regime is using to recklessly MANIPULATE and CONTROL other people:

    – "descendents of Dragons",
    – "Chinese blood", 
    – "Chinese root",
    – "Ancestors",
    – "Patriotic Chinese",
    – "Traitors",
    – "China motherland",
    – "Belongs to China",
    – "China's internal affair",
    – "Inseparable part of China",
    – "Since ancient times".

    Trudeau can give 31 million of our tax dollars to former terrorists. Why can't he spare some of our tax money to help save this kid's life? I wish I had a say in how my tax dollars were spent.

    There are MILLIONS in Canada that are in the same position because of Trudeau, and Trudeau isn't going to win our vote by hand picking the ONE CHILD that he chooses to save from his mismanagement of the country. This father should be appealing to Canadians, and not the failure of a leader that put his son in this situation. Appealing to parents hearts for their votes. Trudeau will use it as a publicity stunt. That's what he is about. Look and image. Nothing substantial. If this father meets Trudeau, I hope tells him what a 🤬 leader he is, and what a horrible legacy he has left.

    Don't ask Trudeau for help. Ask 37 million Canadians for help. Trudeau CAUSED THE PROBLEM!

    CCP should be declared a “CRIMINAL ORG” by UN for killing 1M people across globe. CCP can’t get away with massacre. All countries should work together to this front. If nothing is done to check CCP, it will get incentivized. A dangerous situation for next generation

    Pray for the kid and his parents. Hope they get the fund for this poor kid to get the treatment. I always feel so sad that kids with rare disease come to this world. I hope every couple to get a medical body check before trying to get pregnant.

    HD is the most deadly neurodegenerative disease and we are working on many different types of stem cell therapy, gene-therapy and lots and lots of clinical trials are being done for this disease which would benefit ALL genetic diseases. People don't understand that while these are extremely rare diseases, there are people with similar things dying all the time. For example my entire moms side of my family has died because it is so genetically dominant. Please don't go to Trudeau, he has enough on his plate with corona and providing funding for the research to continue for us.
