Re: “Historic downtown school still anchors city’s culture,” Michael Dawe, Opinion, July 24.
This week, I had an appointment at the new Culture Services Centre. I got instructions as to where to park (on the street), which was the closest to the main entrance.
I have difficulty walking. The long, long distance to the doors, then up several steps (no hand rails) to the doors, up a steep set of stairs to the office, and then back again, was not easily done or pain free.
I asked how a person in a wheelchair gets to the offices and was told there is a “back entrance” that will bring them close to an elevator.
The “new” cultural centre of 2019 is easily accessible to the able-bodied members of the public, but not for those with mobility problems. What a shame.
