AODA: A Moving Experience

By Victor Schwartzman
March 7, 2014

There was once a fellow named me
who for Accessibility News and AODA
wrote a column about the government
(its access implementation was a load of

nothing, really.) Writing something about nothing
weeks after no implementation weeks
creates worries: wheres the justice?
The governments stalling on access reeks

bad, really. Fear always rules the politicians.
Promises were easy. Talk of AODA cheap.
But access angered cities and businesses
until implementation became a growing heap

of —-, really. And, speaking of my
move, its over, and the unpacking
now just finishing. Life has been a blur
and my news of AODA quite lacking

reality, really though AODAs not real
yet, and I again see no progress of late.
Dean Morays hearings are important
but really: no one should wait.
