Nova Scotia Violates Human Rights Of The Disabled
This interview is brought about because Halifax Metro transit refuses to provide public transit buses that have safe, secure, fit and proper four point tie downs for the heavy electric wheelchairs. Metro transit has be continuously buying NOVA buses that are completely unfit and completely unsafe for power wheelchair users. So that now wheelchair users have almost no access to most of the bus routes. Meaning that our human rights are being violated.. Please listen to this interview done on October 17 2012 with me, Daniel J Towsey.
