Should washrooms be open to all?

Replay the Saskatoon Morning live chat.

You're on a road trip and you have to use the washroom -- badly. So you have to wait until you come across the next business. 
When you arrive, there's a sign in the window that says washrooms are for paying customers only. So you have to find another business that's open. 

But for some people with certain disabilities -- they just don't have the time to wait. Now, there's a campaign lobbying to open washrooms for all -- especially for people with bowel diseases. 

In the U.S. there's legislation in some states that requires businesses let people with bowel disease use their facilities. 

Saskatoon Morning asked its audience the following questions: Should businesses open their washrooms for all? Should there be a law requiring businesses to do so for people with certain diseases?
