CBC Report on AODA Alliance Chair David Lepofsky’s Court Case Against the Ford Government’s Disability Discrimination in Online Health Card Renewal Process Makes it Seem Like the Government is Making it Up as it Goes Along

On Tuesday, February 1, 2022, three media outlets covered the court application that AODA Alliance Chair David Lepofsky is bringing against the Ford Government for the disability discrimination in its online process for renewing an expired Ontario Health Card. Ontario allows a person to renew their Health Card online only if they have a driver’s license. That rules out anyone whose disability precludes them from being able to drive. For example, it rules out people who have no driver’s license but who have an Ontario Photo ID Card, which the Ontario Government created to be equivalent identification to a driver’s license.
