My goodness and I’m Christian Robicheau at our business desk saying goodbye
to summer and hello to Fall.
I cannot believe that summer 2021 is over but alas!
Today, I am pleased to share our president’s weekly editorial with you and
for this week Donna J. Jodhan expresses her dismay and sadness over feelings
We encourage you to read on.
Wishing you a first fall weekend.
Feelings of desertion
There is nothing worse than having these types of feelings. They have a way
of sticking to you and not going away very easily.
This is how I and many other Canadians with disabilities continue to feel
and why? I’ll focus on two specific areas of concern and hopefully others
can share their thoughts.
The first concerns the recent Canadian Federal Elections where Parties
seemed to have forgotten to address most of our major concerns. They seemed
to have either glossed over our concerns or to have ignored them completely.
Once again, our voices went unheard and we were left with horrible feelings
of desertion and disillusion.
The leaders debates barely touched on issues pertaining to persons with
disabilities and party platforms were often very challenging to access
The second area concerns how Canadians are being treated when it comes to
ensuring that we are not left behind in the management of the pandemic.
At the present time, Canadians with disabilities are facing huge challenges
when it comes to being able to access websites with information necessary to
help us obtain vaccine certificates let alone to be able to complete the
necessary forms in order to do so. Then there is the challenge of an
inaccessible app titled Arrive Can that is supposed to be used to process
one’s safe entry back into Canada after traveling abroad. This is another
example of being forgotten and being deserted.
If we pay our taxes then we must be listened to and treated equally. For I
can bet my last dollar that if for some reason I failed to pay my taxes you
would see how quickly the Government would come after me to collect my
Fair is fair! Seniors and persons with disabilities need to be given more
inclusivity. We must not be forgotten and we must not be deserted.
Finally, with a rapidly aging population the above mentioned groups are fast
becoming the consumer and customer in the marketplace and this trend is only
going to prevail.
Just my two cents for today!
