Kamloops council approving a request to send a letter of support to the province for Barrier Free B.C in the hopes the provincial government will enact a Persons with Disabilities Act.
Councillor Arjun Singh says it seems like the letter could remind the ministries responsible of the importance of finding improvements.
“Maybe a letter from us, a little Kamloops letter might help them think about it a little bit more urgently potentially so I would support that too.”
Vern Short of Barrier Free B.C says there are over 600 thousand British Columbians with disabilities who would benefit.
“B.C is still one of the very few jurisdictions that does not have legislation in place for this.”
Kamloops Council will be sending a letter to the provincial and federal ministers responsible for the Persons with Disabilities Act.
