Parents in West Vancouver voiced their concerns about B.C.'s services for people with disabilities, and the province's minister of social development was on hand to listen.

"If the system was working perfectly, you probably wouldn't be here," admitted Minister Don McRae.

The B.C. government is drafting a white paper to guide its disability policy.

Ani Khodian fears her eight-year-son won't get the support he needs when he turns 18.

"My son had a stroke when he was in utero. We didn't know until we was about three days old. From visual impairment to epilepsy to cerebral palsy, the list goes on," Khodian says.

B.C. hopes to put out its white paper early this summer.
