Everyone – including people with disabilities, seniors, and families – deserves equitable access to taxicabs Sault Ste. Marie. In truth, we are perplexed that our City’s taxi owners do not share this view and are surprised by the resistance of taxi owners to add accessible taxis to their fleet.
In the debate around whether the Sault Ste. Marie’s taxi fleet should include accessible taxis, we don’t want to pit passenger against passenger. Our plan continues to evolve as we strive to provide solutions by working with the City of Sault Ste. Marie and the Police Services Board.
This spring the Toronto Transit Commission announced it intends to contravene the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act by reneging on its commitment to full station accessibility by 2025.
Please communicate with your incumbent councillor and other candidates for your ward. Help us educate them about TTC Accessibility. It is essential that we reach candidates before October 27 and ask them to respond to this very important question.Tweet
