Are your City, Office and Home Accessible?


This week’s Conversation That Matters features Brad McCannell of the Rick Hansen Foundation says, “we are all on a long slippery slope towards mobility challenges” He says the time to pay attention to accessibility in your home, your office and your city is now and he points out, “we’re not doing such a great job.”


McCannell says an effective accessibility strategy is consistency. “ Imagine having to plan your trip not knowing from one intersection to the next if you get from one side to the other. Will there be a ramp? Will it be an appropriate ramp?’ McCannell says we’ve had a hogpog policy that includes a little of this and a little of that and it comes up short of an effective accessibility plan.
