Calgary Civic Elections
We reached out to mayoral and council candidates in Calgary with two issues:

1. Funding for Low Income Transit Pass
2. Enhanced funding for snow and ice clearing and removal on sidewalks and curb cuts that impede access for persons with disabilities.

Safe and Accessible Pathways - Invitation

As summer arrives and pathways are again bustling with Calgarians enjoying the opportunity to get outside, the safety of everyone using the pathways is critical.  With many different wheeled devices travelling quickly, interactions with pedestrians can be threatening, especially where disabilities exist that may not be evident to others. Disabilities range from vision challenges, deaf and hard of hearing to users with earbuds restricting their hearing.
