Reminder to Attend May 9, 2013 Toronto Transit Commission Public Forum on Accessible Transit
Here is the latest news on these topics:
1. More troubling media reports, this time from Windsor Ontario. raise concerns about the need for effective enforcement of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
2. Recent Windsor and Toronto incidents also highlight the need to strengthen the customer Service Accessibility Standard, and for the Government to now appoint all members to the mandatory Accessibility Standards Advisory Council, so that the mandatory review of that accessibility standard can at last get underway.
3. We await with anticipation the Government’s appointment of the Next Independent Review of the AODA. The person to conduct that Independent Review must be appointed by May 31, 2013.
4. We remind you to Attend the May 9, 2013 Toronto Transit Commission Public Forum on Accessible Public Transit, which happens to fall on Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
