Markos P started this petition to Toronto City Council and

Today I was greeted by one of my friendly neighbors at the front entrance of our building as I was coming home from work.  She is confined to a wheelchair and was holding a clipboard and pen with a piece of paper that had about 12 names on it. She politely introduced herself and asked me if I would be so kind as to sign her petition to reinstate the access ramp entrance at the rear of the building which was recently closed off to people with disabilities.

After signing her petition and having a conversation about her struggles without rear access, I was torn to hear about the amount of effort she put in to getting those signatures over the last few days and felt it was my duty to assist in any way I can.  

Most of the tenants here are elderly.  Many of them with walkers and wheelchairs who frequent the back entrance to access the parking lot for pickups and use the inner walkways to access the lower parts of the Beaches community.  With the rear ramp now chained closed, and notices around the building stating that the ramp is for moving items in and out only, they are forced to use the front entrance on the busier side of the building which requires them to walk an even further distance to access areas of interest to them.

My goal here isn't to start a negative conversation about our building.  My only goal is to gain support in asking the building management company to do a better job in servicing all tenants and add in a safer, reliable access point for people with disabilities in all building access points rather than just chaining close the ramp and putting up a notice. 

Let's help a wonderful lady regain access to the most enjoyable moments in her life.  It's a small thing to ask for in the grand scheme of things and I couldn't help but start this petition to help her get the exposure she needs.  I'm sure she and all the other tenants who require accessible access in our building will appreciate your signature.

Thank you!
