I’m calling Councillor McArthur’s attitude about accessibility issues a flip flop.
Councillor McArthur commented during the discussion of Councillor Pouget’s December 12, 2022 motion regarding accounts payable being placed back on public agendas. McArthur said he would caution against one option because that’s kind of circumventing accessibility provisions. He said if it’s important information that’s important to get out there, then it’s important for everybody and it needs to be accessible. He said they can’t do an end run around it.
So why did he remain silent on the issue of Open Air barriers and the removal of them? It’s especially concerning since he’s council’s rep to the Amherstburg Accessibility Advisory Committee.
