The system for access used to Mr. Ianno's office proved to be a unique experience for Warren's World. The effort and dedication of the team was outstanding

Trinity Spadina Wrap Up

The office of Conservative Candidate Sam Boldstein is located on King Street West, near Bathurst. This office is fully accessible. Campaign Official David Simpson spoke passionately about how accessibility was among this campaign's primary concerns in selecting office space. This office is highly sensitive to issues of access and disability issues as a whole, and is aware of the platform commitment for a National Disability Act.
Thumbs Up!

Liberal incumbent Tony Ianno's office is headquartered on Beverley Street. The office is not wheelchair accessible from the front entrance. However, there is an accessible motorized system at the side entrance. Tony and his entire team are highly sensitive to disability issues and have made painstaking efforts to ensure full inclusion in a unique way. The system worked (a motorized chair-lift system), and, with volunteer assistance and creative effort, the entire Warren's World crew was able to access and participate in this office. Tony changed his daily schedule at the last minute to give an interview with Warren, and he personally endorses federal legislation for Canadians with Disabilities.
Thumbs Way Up on uniquely creative effort -- not seen in this respect in any other office!.
Thumbs Up on access!

NDP Candidate Olivia Chow's office is on Bloor Street West in The Annex. This office is accessible, with a uniquely-coloured wheelchair ramp. Even on one of the busiest days of the campaign, staff demonstrated outstanding sensitivity to disability issues, ensuring that we speak directly to the candidate, and express support for a Canadians with Disabilities Act.
Thumbs Up on physical access! Thumbs Way Up on attitudinal access!
