In 2008 the Alberta government asked developmentally disabled residents, their families and guardians, if they wanted to stay in Michener Centre. Ninety per cent decided to stay. For them, Michener is home. The government promised that they would not close Michener. Now, Premier Alison Redford has broken that promise and ordered their eviction, with the support of local MLAs Mary Anne Jablonski and Cal Dallas.
