I had no option but to do this report for my protection.
If the Manager, If the Owner, If the Corporation of Canadian Tire had at anytime shown me due respect.
This report would not have been done or published.
This post has a video that has a part of my recording the owner of the Canadian Tire store on Quinpool Rd in Halifax, in which he clearly shows that truth means nothing to him, he lies out loud in the store about my previous behavior to lie to the customers in the store and mislead them, then near the end he threatens me and says
“If I was not in a wheelchair” Insinuating to do me physical harm.
The owner can even be heard saying that
“he cares not nor does it concern him that I am disabled”
Which is exactly why I am having to do this wheelchair report.
Then I said, “If I was not in a wheelchair I would not of had this problem”
When you listen to this video, you will hear the narrated part I did at the beginning.
You will know why I got loud with the manager.
I did that because he moved in very close to me and leaned over me in a very menacing way.
Where I was parked in my wheelchair, I could not back up or move anywhere to get away from him.
Which is why we were in that spot to begin with.
I was showing him how I could not move past all the obstructions.
He had me trapped and was smirking and laughing when he realized that I was afraid of him.
When I asked him to move away from me he would not.
At that point is when I became very scared for my safety and is why I began to speak loud until I left the store.
I needed to make sure that other people were watching what was happening.
I felt very much in danger for my physical being from the moment that manager leaned into me very close and would not move away from me.
I even told the manager that I was speaking loud to make sure that the customers in the store would see and hear what was going on.
Being disabled and in a very fragile condition I am in. The only defense I have is my voice by getting other peoples attention.
In this video you will hear the same menacing and threatening behavior from the owner.
But first I want you to take notice that the first thing I said to the owner of the Canadian Tire Store Franchise, was that I was talking with the corporate offices of Canadian Tire in Toronto.
Take notice that immediately the owner made it very clear that he absolutely did not care to talk about or know what I was talking to head office about.
He made it clear that the Corporation of Canadian Tire’s involvement is of no concern to him.
Showing that his attitude should definitely be of serious concern for The Canadian Tire Corporation.
Immediately you can hear that this owner had absolutely no intention of being civilized and reasonable.
So now you the viewers and readers of my post here can understand that the owner is the problem.
He made that very clear from the start.
When his voice gets very loud is because he was leaning up really close to my face and was very threatening by his being overbearingly close to me.
Again I was trapped. Because in the entrance of the store to the left is the customer service counter.
The only way I can get close to it so I can reach the counter is by backing up in a very tight spot and put the back of my wheelchair against the post that holds the security sensors for the anti theft alarms when people enter or exit the store.
So this owner did the same thing. He became very threatening when I was trapped.
I had many witnesses at this time and I was recording the sound. SO I did not need to get loud to draw attention to me for my protection.
If this store was wheelchair accessible it would not have the customer service counter blocked to wheelchairs.
So later that day when it was dark out I decided to do a Wheelchair Report about the conditions of the outside grounds of Quinpool Mall and the adjoining properties that are also owned by Quingate Properties.
(I will be posting a separate wheelchair report for Quinpool Mall – Quingate Properties)
So at the end when I was done. I ended up at the front of the Canadian Tire Store where I was speaking with some friends.
Then the security guy comes out of the Canadian Tire store yelling at me and telling me that I have to leave.
So then I turned on my camera and caught a few seconds when the security guy ran back into the store because he did not want to be on video.
This report will also include video wheelchair rights reports to other issues about the Quingate Properties at Quinpool Rd in Halifax that this Canadian Tire is on.
There is also a Superstore, Liquor Store, a Wendys, a Shoppers Mart and a few other smaller stores on this property.
All the reports I have done about this property shows that the Quingate Property owners do not care at all about the safety of people who have to use mobility devices, nor do they care about any pedestrians that are endangered every time they come in from the neighborhood on foot. As the interior lot of this property where the parking lot is located and all the store entrances are dose not have any safe sidewalks and many parts have no sidewalks at all.
Like all Corporate Property owners in Halifax. They do not care if you are disabled and upset about something.
Do not dare to speak up as the managers will not listen, and if you continue to speak up for your safety. You will be banned under the Tyrannic Law “Protection of property act” that violates any due process of law by being arbitrary and gives you no mechanism to have your day in court. Even if you accept their fines and go to court to fight against the fines, as I have already done about the “Halifax Waterfront Commission”
You will discover that courts of justice do not exist in Halifax. Everything here is completely 100% corrupt… MAFIOSO
The Provincial government of Nova Scotia, The City of Halifax need to create legislation, rules, guidelines, inpcetion, and every other departments of government no need to have effects in place to abide by The International Human Rights of the Disbled’ enforced.
Presently the second you become disabled in Nova Scotia, you discover that unlike able bodied people.
There are no laws of any kind at any levels of any governments to protect the rights and safety of disable people.
There are no rules, regulations, guidelines, standards etc etc in any government documentation as to how to construct, build or maintain anything for the special needs of disabled mobility challenged people.
City, Provincial and even Federal inspectors have absolutely no power to do anything, nor do they know how to do anything about, for example, building proper and safe wheelchair bathrooms. doors, ramps or anything else.
Like I said disabled people are completely ignored are every level of society.
But I have to add a disclaimer.
When I did the research for some of my previous reports. I asked many property owners and developers why was it that what they built is not done properly or safely for the needs of wheelchair users. They told me that the city and it’s inspectors are the ones who supervised and authorized things to be done wrong.. Many developers or business owners are good caring people who want to do what they can to make things good for the needs of the disabled. But there is nothing anywhere to guide them as how things should be done or built.
That is exactly why I created this Wheelchair Rights website. To be a research site for concerned people.
One more note.
We are a civilized society and the government is not only to blame.
People are to blame for allowing mistreating and violating the human rights of mobility challenged people.
Please notice that I had no intention of naming publicly nor doing a video to identify who the owner of the store is. Nor did I give out the last name of the manager.
I did this because my intention here is to show everyone involved and the general public what disabled people face when dealing with totally ignorant business or property owners.
I could of easily written here the names of the people involved, that includes the names of the people at the head office of Canadian Tire.
When I contacted head office, it was a courtesy call and I explained everything to them as to what was going on here at the Canadian Tire franchise store on Quinpool Rd. in Halifax Nova Scotia.
All I asked of head office is to look into this situation and to send their regional supervisor to go candidly into the store and see if what I said about the way the store is, is true or not. I asked head office not to speak to the store owner so that they could find out objectively what is going on.
And when they found out what is going on under their name at this franchise store, to just let me know when it would safe for me to return and that an apology is due to me.
But head office also completely disrespected my humanity.
This report about Canadian Tire shows clearly what the problem is.
It is a universal attitude of total ignorance…
I am disabled and I do not accept being treated with total ignorance by Corporate people..
