My City is Ignorant

Shame on you Hamilton and good on you Leafs. Read about how a disabled boy was denied access to a skating rink right here in my city!!

I mean seriously, you can't accommodate a wheel chair on an ice rink? Hockey players weigh three times as much. Anyway, the kid scored and you lose Hamilton.

This story is one for the disability groups in your area to get their teeth into.

I am not familiar with what groups are in Canada, but I'd start writing some letters - newspapers, etc.

All public facilities should be handicap accessible - Canada needs to catch up with US laws to help Canadians have the same rights.

Wow, I'm glad mom stuck in there--how awful. And way to go Leafs!! What a darling little boy.

Hi! Anne We do have such laws and skating rinks are wheel chair accessible. The managers of this rink are ignorant fools who just couldn't be bothered to have a disabled kid around.
