Protesters in wheelchairs demand greater metro access

A handful of protesters who use wheelchairs gather at the Place des Arts metro station to back their call for more wheelchair-friendly subway stops. Only seven stops are fully accessible.

The vice-chair of the STM says he understands their frustration but would need more money from the province to move more quickly to retro-fit other stations. About half a dozen stations will be renovated over the next couple of years, according to Rotrand.
