As Omicron Surges, Ford Government Flagrantly Discriminates Against Many Ontarians with Disabilities in Access to Health Care by Requiring A Driver’s License to Renew Ontario Health Card Online

This obvious disability discrimination violates the Ontario Human Rights Code and section 15 of the Charter of Rights. Many people with disabilities, such as blind people, cannot get a driver’s license. Doug Ford forces them to go to a Service Ontario venue to renew their health card, risking exposure to COVID-19. A person with vision loss or certain other disabilities faces additional challenges in maintaining safe social distancing at Service Ontario venues due to their disability.
