Candidates discuss accessibility at All Candidates Forum

Accessibility became a prominent issue at last night’s All Candidates Forum as several mayor and councillor hopefuls lamented the current accessibility levels of public buildings and roadways. Councillor candidate Warren Mears called for the installation of additional handicap parking spaces, as well as better enforcement of bylaws reserving those spaces for the disabled.
