No Human Rights Enforcement for Transit?

On Friday, I went through an exercise of major frustration. I phoned all over the place trying to find enforcement for a human rights settlement against
Kingston Transit that was made in 2006 through the Human Rights Commission.

At this point I have already spent 6 months trying to get the Kingston Transit routes, that were once declared as being “Fully Accessible” back to being
that way. But so far, it has been to no avail. For reasons I cannot explain, the transit manager has decided that, because of bus stop design and safety
issues, the accessibility of routes can be diminished by simply renaming the routes as “Easier Access” routes.
