Advocacy


This is video about accessibility issues in Montreal. It opened my eyes that I want to make a video like this in Calgary. I am planning on doing it very soon. Canada as a whole is a new and modern country. We have a lot of services in place for persons with disabilities. But when it comes to universal accessibility, I'm afraid we fall short. This is a problem that effects more than just wheelchair users. People with crutches, strollers, impaired movement in anyway is affected. 

The reason this issue is close to my heart besides it affecting me personally is the fact that it's a basic human right. I will not be silent and act like it is ok that I cannot have access to my city and all the good things in it.
