I vow to make city more accessible
Talk of inclusiveness and equal access for all is everywhere -- but that doesn't mean reality has caught up to rhetoric. As a Calgarian with a disability,
I constantly run up against barriers that turn routine activities into onerous challenges.
Improving accessibility for Calgary citizens has never been as high a priority for civic leaders as it should be, as Sharon Foo, a Calgary freelance writer
with a disability, noted in last Monday's Herald. I'd like to respond to the challenge she issued by setting out how, as Mayor of Calgary, I will confront
what is clearly a very personal issue.
