Specific recommendations were made regarding accessibility or equitable treatment of persons with disabilities:
- To raise the level of accessibility to international standards, the parks divisions in the Department of Natural Resources should formally commit to standards for parks and outdoor recreation as set out in Britian’s accessibility regulations and Proposed Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas. It should also institute formal and binding accessibility review and approval procedure for all capital projects and programs and commit to remediation of non-complying facilities.
This begs the question about what the Disabled Person's Commission is doing. Shouldn't they be looking after this sort of thing?
