Get Physically Disabled Children, Adults/Seniors off the Upper Canada Mall Floor!
This petition had 26,340 supporters
Hi, I'm writing to you for your support in seeing the Upper Canada Mall provide a washroom for children, adults and seniors with severe physical disabilities. With a $60 million renovation, it would be such a great, innovative yet basic accommodation to add.
Children, adults and seniors who visit the Upper Canada Mall or any mall and need to use the washroom must be physically lifted from their wheelchair and be laid on the floor near toilets and the garbage inorder to be changed. This type of activity is happening everyday. In 2018, does this seem fair? Does this bother you? Does it shock you? I'm one of many who does this when I support someone at the mall. It is really unfair, unhygienic, unsafe and not dignified.
If you agree, please sign your name in support of having a proper washroom with a adult change table and lift. Just to give you an idea, please check out changingplaces on youtube for an example.
Currently, there are over 1000 in the UK! Why not here? Its not hard....just a widening of our minds.
We all need to make @uppercanadamall realize what they could start in York Region. We can do this! What a great addition it would be to our region. It would put UCM on the map for sure and how proud they could be to meet the needs of the physically disabled shopper. There are over 13,000 people in York Region who are in wheelchairs and ride the local transit. What great business sense to make a large indoor, cultural and social building inviting and truly accessible.
Way to go Stouffville, ON for having the Accessible Washroom Trailer for spring, summer and fall outdoor events! Check it out! Made by Innovative Trailer Designs in Canada/USA.
