The polling station at Veritas School for last week’s provincial election was inaccessible. The yellow voter information card we did receive before the election indicated Veritas School was accessible.
In fact this was misleading because entering and exiting was not accessible.
Sure there is door opener, but guess what, the door opener did not work. Therefore entering and exiting was inaccessible.
I could not open the door because it was too heavy. That is why the door opener is there.
To be truly accessible and inclusive the door opener needs to be working. When not working this is not accessible. The school should have had that door opener working before the election.
The location at Veritas School was not accessible and therefore a thumbs down.
Next time have the polling station in a location that is truly accessible and inclusive.
Also that tarp covering the floor was uneven and I nearly tripped.
People’s attitude needs to change to a positive one to make Terrace accessible.
One attitude that could have been positive, the school should have had the door openers working.
