All day today I'll be taking the #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge ... "spend a day avoiding anywhere that is not accessible" and detail the day on Twitter as I go. So today some tweets will not be transit related.
My current home is only suitable for a person who can climb stairs. Like thousands living in a townhouse, I would have to move if mobility changed. A stair lift is not an option. No ground floor bathing or possible bedroom. #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge
When my elderly friends visit the steps m are an issue, the condo does not have stair rails at front or rear doors. I'm in process of asking for permission to add them. Not clear if this will be easy or a hassle to get boards approval. #StopGapOttawa24hrAccessibilityChallenge Picture of my front door with it's two steps and no railings.

Day 2 #ReallyBigServiceChange #LRT commute. Place D’Orleans Park & Ride was extremely busy & not everyone made it into the 1st bus that arrived, which was packed by the time we departed Place. 1/7
Got to Blair and barely made it in time for the train. Lots of folks didn’t make it to the train in time because they moved down the platform as instructed, but didn’t enter at the first open car door. 2/7
As folks adjust to the #LRT and their new commute, these issues will iron themselves out. However, I believe that there are a few tweaks that need to be made in order to reduce customer aggravation. 3/7

No mention of #Gatineau serving @OC_Transpo buses in post #LRT readiness report? Specifically not in remaining route adjustments summary. Only STO service?

Ready for Rail My Route page has some information but doesn't address peak hour capacity provisions. 85 will have to run a lot to handle all East Ottawa folks transferring at Pimisi. (Western folks seem to have more trips / route options.) #LRT #transit
The #transit fare zone transfer areas for Tunneys, Hurdman and Blair are hard to picture. Pedestrians come at those stations beside bus roadway so... #LRT

#LRT ADOPTEZ VOS ANIMAUX EN ASSO !
Je vais pas me refendre d'un thread sur le sujet, en particulier sur les chats.
Oh, et puis si, tiens. Sans répéter ce qui est déjà dans le thread que j'ai RT et qui est très juste.
La seule chose que je répète : les animaux dits "de race" (ce ne sont pas vraiment des races aka des espèces mais des variétés) sont génétiquement modifiés par la sélection humaine. En soi c'est pas un problème. En revanche, ça le devient lorsque :

1/ In case we needed more reasons for building better cities, the evidence is growing that #mentalhealth is significantly affected by #urbanplanning and #urbandesign ... whether for the better or the worse is up to us ...
2/ Exposure to natural light is linked to better sleep, reduced stress, and better work/school performance bit.ly/2ORgMiw. A well-designed city ensures access to natural light on sidewalks, in public spaces, and inside homes and offices.
3/ Boring streetscapes, with monotonous, feature-less facades and lack of sensory stimulation, can increase sadness, addiction and disease-related stress bit.ly/2OWX5WD

OK, bienvenue à bord d'un thread un peu chaotique à destination des personnes féministes et blanches, particulièrement les meufs cis.
Ça fait quelques temps que je tombe de plus en plus souvent sur des commentaires de féministes blanches qui commentent des threads de personnes racisées en essayant d'invalider leurs expériences avec des propos soit-disant universalistes.
Du coup, j'vais essayer d'expliquer pourquoi ça me trigger de ouf, moi qui suis pourtant exactement la même chose, càd une féministe blanche, et pourquoi ce que vous considérez comme des réponses violentes sont carrément justifiées.
