Human Rights Commission Warns Municipalities AND Municipal Transit Authorities to Ensure That All New Buses are Accessible, Despite Anything Less in McGuinty Government’s Proposed Accessibility Standard

February 17, 2011

SUMMARY

We commend the Ontario Human Rights Commission for writing local public transit authorities and municipalities across Ontario, warning them not to buy inaccessible buses, no matter what exemptions may be in the McGuinty Government’s proposed Integrated Accessibility Regulation. The Government’s inadequate proposed new accessibility standard would let public transit authorities and municipalities rush out now to enter in to contracts before July 1, 2011, which include no accessibility features. The Human Rights Commission warns that to do so could lead to human rights complaints against those organizations that purchase them. This highlights one of the serious problems with the McGuinty Government’s proposed Integrated Accessibility Regulation that we have highlighted.
