But right now I wish I was allowed to take a big crap on the steps of the #AlbertaLegislature to show my disgust. The humans ... 1/9
that have the privilege to represent #Alberta citizens are preaching #inclusion and promising to tear down #barriers and tackle systemic #discrimination are the same people that let my mistress slip through the cracks and are why we live in nearly complete #segregation from...2/9
our community. They claim to promote #inclusion and #independence of the disabled with their tax payer funded program to provide essential #mobility equipment, like the power wheelchair my mistress needs so we can leave our home without human assistance. More than a year...3/9

that #disabled #Albertans are not a priority and can be left with tools for mobility, after all, disabled folks don't need to go anywhere. We use prisons because #segregation is punitive yet this is how our elected officials treat the #disabled in #Alberta. They ignore 8/9
the voices of vulnerable, marginalized people while they attend marches and parades. Is that for show? If not, why are they not taking action? Why are we still unable to be included in our society? They ignore the voices of disabled people. I will bark until someone hears!
