Winnipegosis Man Wants Changes to Vulnerable Persons Act

A Winnipegosis man living with Cerebral Palsy is calling the government out.
 
Alex Lytwyn is calling for changes to the province's Vulnerable Person's and Home Care Act.
 
He is only getting 155 hours of home care bi-weekly, or about 10.5 hours a day, but that is not enough as his condition worsens.
 
Lytwyn doesn't qualify for full-time care under the Vulnerable Persons Act because he doesn't have a mental disability. 
 
The Manitoba government currently has no plans to change the Vulnerable Persons act.
