Why AODA Was Created: The Truth!!

By Victor Schwartzman

Sir Dalton’s genius was that AODA only appeared to be an effective law. It actually required only that businesses and services submit forms. Years would go by, he predicted, before anyone would even think to ask what happened to the forms. The pressure would take a long time to build, Sir Dalton relying on the advocates being Canadians and being too polite to complain. It would only be when the Government would be forced, rather than do anything, to miss AODA deadlines that he predicted advocates’ complaints would become publicly noticeable.
