Accessibility is important for communities, for our society. Our city must be inclusive and accessible to all and of course that includes individuals living with accessibility challenges.
I had the opportunity to be vice-chair of the City’s Universal Accessibility Advisory Committee and heard from many in our community facing accessibility challenges. I am always pleased to hear how we can make our facilities and events more accessible and am proud that in the summer of 2018 a new wheelchair accessible dock was installed at Como Lake Park.
I have been a very vocal advocate for more transportation options and that includes more accessible taxis and ride-sharing options that are wheelchair-friendly. http://bit.ly/2PSd49c
I have played wheelchair rugby, aka murder ball, at a neighbouring municipality’s rec centre. I fully support more wheelchair recreation opportunities in Coquitlam.
