In a normal apartment why is the handicapped elevator the elevator that able bodied people use to move their belongings. Now I said it and put it in writing doesn't it sound like able bodied people treat people who use wheels like a second classed person?
I understand that the world may not be quit ready for what Mightywheels.ca is doing.
Today I physical went over to Callingwood Market Pace Mall because I heard that the center corp workers were there to repair the mall and I wanted to personally thank them for the second repairing and repainting of an entry ramp for people who use wheels.
When I returned home, 2 u-haul moving trucks were in the front of the building. One blocking the officially marked handy capped ramp and the other truck blocking from unloading, now there is a unloading zone at the back of the building able to accompany 2 vehicles but, it was empty.
I went into the Boardwalk Office to complain about the trucks, I was first told "Oh its alright they'll move soon" the trucks didn't move. I complained again. this time the lady from the front desk said get someone to assist me. I called 311 the man I was talking to knew who I was, we talked before when Mightywheels.ca got the city to build the crosswalk with lights on 69th ave. He said put your on speaker, because he wanted to hear if they were treating me right with this complaint.

I to use wheels to get around in Edmonton, and I understand that our city is not the enemy to the people who use wheels, but age of the land and seasonal erosion is… Why won’t other people understand that, because I feel if we the people worked with our city better more would get done to better comfort the cities people.
What I’m ever so nicely asking for is to allow my MLA Lorne Dach to take the 2min. needed to explain to the legislature on May the 16th at 1:00 all about Mightywheels the accessibility team.
Thank you very much, I really hope writing this letter helps, because this accessibility problem could turn into a problem you and people must face. (Personally)
The inevitable is that we all will age, "Canada Health" says by the time the typical Canadian reaches 85 years old, 6-10 of us will have mobility issues or have to use a wheelchair. Edmonton’s City intersections, sidewalks, and sidewalk ramps are not in the best of conditions. I do not want to be confined indoor so lets think of every ones interests and sign this petition to get Edmonton's intersections, sidewalks and sidewalk ramps in better condition.

Today I went to the north end of Edmonton to have a coffee with my cousin and every handy-capped parking stall, I saw over there was either taken by someone who had the proper handy-capped parking plaque or the stall was empty.
Why may I ask do the people in the neighborhood I live in all ways brake the law and park in handy-capped stalls or in the apartments I live in, they block the ramp and or use the front of the buildings handy-capped ramp as a moving dolly ramp when the load zone is at the back of the building?
Edmonton has their 311 app up and running now, its slowed my job
