Disabled citizens say quadriplegic Sullivan ignored obstacles, even in new projects
A Vancouver woman with multiple sclerosis is condemning the city and its mayor for failing to ensure newly upgraded areas are wheelchair accessible.
"It's like an obstacle course trying to get down the street," Cheryl Tabler said.
Tabler and other citizens with disabilities are especially upset with the outgoing mayor, quadriplegic Sam Sullivan, for claiming several times that Vancouver is the most accessible city in North America — perhaps in the world.
