CHRT Smacks Elections Canada Over Polling Station Access

Toronto man Peter Hughes has won a human rights complaint against Elections Canada after crawling down a flight of stairs to cast his vote two years ago.

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal expressed concern about Mr. Hughes' humiliating voting experience and ruled that Elections Canada shall:
"...not have any polling stations in any electoral district in Canada that do not have barrier-free access"...
Hopefully Canada will move silently past this embarrassing oversight. There's no way we can proudly announce:

"Elections Canada - Giving access to ALL disabled voters since 2010!"
