May 12, 2012

 

I am now trapped in my home.

I live alone and I have no relatives in this country.

I will not be able to go out for anything. That includes groceries.

I can walk short distances with a walker and my knee braces.

But I can not stand for more then a minute before the pain from my multiple skeletal injures becomes unbearable.

I can not carry anything and I can barely hold on to my walker.

I can travel in a taxi if it has armrests.

But there is no grocery stores near me that have motorized shopping carts.

Going to one far away that does, is still not an option as they do not deliver and the taxi drivers refuse to carry my groceries up to my apartment.

We have a public health care system here in Halifax Nova Scotia.. so they are supposed to provide and care for my wheelchair.

The supervisor Tammy Hamilton (902) 424-1946, at social services says she will not authorize me getting the wheelchair I need.

They also will not fix my broken motorized chair.

So when I went to the welfare office to speak with her because she never answers her telephone nor returns calls for anyone.

I was told that no one can come in off the street without an appointment.

Appointments are done by telephone.

But the supervisor never answers her phone, nor does she return messages.

So then they called the police and told me I am banned for six months from going to the welfare office.

If you have read my previous articles about my serious difficulties with the government abusing my rights.

You would know how serious and difficult my situation is.

You would also realize that the Nova Scotia government does not care for nor protect the rights of the disabled.

Instead they just get worse the more I try to remedy the difficulties.

Here in Nova Scotia wheelchairs are assigned by government occupational therapists.

I have been dealing with Mark Burley at Nova Scotia rehabilitation services.

He has not been willing to replace my chair with one that I need.

Plus the chair I have is constantly breaking as it is an indoor chair and I only use my chair outdoors.

If you have read my previous fifteen page report that I sent to Mark Burley (902) 473-7362, entitled.

“My invacare wheelchair is so horrible”

 

It can be read or you can hear the video transcript at this link.

https://wheelchairrights.wordpress.com/2011/10/21/my-invacare-motorized-wheelchair-is-so-horrible/

You would then realize how criminal the behaviour of government and its agents has been. And you would fully understand why my chair needs to be replaced.

Mark Burley has chosen not to read my report and has also chosen to ignore the quote from the Bounder wheelchair manufacturer, for the chair I need.

It has now been six months since he received the quote that he has not assessed.

So now I have been getting really desperate and upset.

So now Mark Burley insults me by saying that I should go see a psychiatrist.

So now I am very worried as I can not go out of my home and I am very much a prisoner.

That is the way the government of Nova Scotia treats disabled people.

If you, my readers are concerned then please telephone Our elected ministers below and express your concerns.

Thank you.

The Nova Scotia Minister of Health. (902) 424-3377

The Nova Scotia Minister of social services. (902) 424-4304

Also please note that I am still being denied any and all medical services.

I can not even get a family doctor as corrupt government insiders keep interfering with my life.

A Note about the wheelchair and why it can not be used.

The right side drive wheel is no longer in contact with the ground.

It seems that the tire was spinning on the rim and then now the tire is not even touching the ground.

The frame of the chair must be bent or broken.

Also the chair has numerous electrical and electronic problems.

My invacare wheelchair is so horrible”

 PLEASE LISTEN TO OR READ THIS LENGHTY REPORT I WROTE.

It will shock you at what I have been through

    • Brandon Corona LEMME GUESS, BEFORE I READ. TSA?
    • June C-Lemens Na, but I guess the chair would be considered a weapon of mass destruction😦

    • Brandon Corona OCCUPY LOVE
      Please read this story about how a fellow FB friend is being denied a wheelchair by the health care system in Halifax Nova Scotia. This is outrageous! Please make phone calls to the numbers listed in this article and demand a wheelchair for Daniel. Come on guys, we have to do something. Let’s get Daniel a wheelchair. Maybe we can all donate to Daniel’s cause and help him to regain his independence. If anyone knows how to set this up, please let me know.

      Justin Arbuckle via Daniel J Towsey  Hope you can hold out!
      • Kathleen Curran Daniel, this is deplorable! We need to make this go viral so everyone can make phone calls. How much does a new wheelchair cost? We need to start a collection.
      • The Visionary Folk Photographer The chair I need has to be custom made by Bounder wheelchair manufacturer..They are in the USA.. it cost a lot. I am afraid to say…It is $40,000
        • Gary N Tracy Sitteninatree thanks for sharing Mats Cullin I just love you…😉 and yes what is wrong with people. I wish someone from that area would see this and go and help him.
        • Mats Cullin I just can´t stand people with lack of empathy………..I too wish that someone from that area see this and help him-
          • Mats Cullin Well Daniel. I have to say that Gary´s words colud be mine. I totally agree in every word. Hang in there!:)
          • Mats Cullin shared!:)

            I am so so sorry, I have posted your story everywhere I can and have asked anyone in your area to go and help you. Not one person should have to deal like this. That is why it is important for peoples to stick together and say fuck governments. Sorry but sometimes it is the only way to say it. Sending you love my friend and help will be coming.
