Vote for an accessible HRM

October 15, 2008
For Immediate Release

PDF version

Starting September 24, The James McGregor Stewart Society asked HRM Council candidates to acknowledge the importance of an accessible HRM by endorsing an Agenda for Access. The Agenda covers simple considerations of access to Government Functions, Infrastructure and Municipal Services. As of October 14, 35 of the 57 candidates have endorsed the agenda. Check the latest tally below.

The Agenda is such an uncontroversial program, easily accomplished by routine fairness and courtesy, that failure to endorse it raises questions of judgment and commitment to good government. The James McGregor Stewart Society recommends voting only for candidates who endorse the Agenda for Access.

Here are the comments of those who have replied (no one who replied withheld support)
