Guarantee safe and accessible routes to the necessities of life for handicapped and disabled citizens
My introduction into the disabled community was two fold.
First in 2011 when a cerebral haemorrhage robbed my wife of some of her eyesight and secondly when a massive stroke in 2014 left me paralyzed on my left side and in a wheelchair. The realization that the poorly cleared sidewalks in our neighborhood prevented not only I in my chair and she with her cane from access to nearby physicians, pharmacies and laboratories not to mention grocery stores but that they also presented similar obstacles to the large number of disabled and elderly residents housed around us.
I felt compelled to act and hope that armed with this petition I can take this fight to a place that could force municipalities to address the needs of disabled persons.
We the undersigned ask that members of government whether municipal, Provincial or Federal work to guarantee safe and accessible routes to the necessities of life for handicapped and disabled citizens.
The Guarantee safe and accessible routes to the necessities of life for handicapped and disabled citizens petition to email@example.com was written by Phil McCoy and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
