    Well done, Kiran If we don't focus our attention on accessibility barriers, no one will.

    Good job Kiran! I totally agree. It is akin to "No Blacks Allowed" signs in the southern states 60 years ago. Can you imagine such signs today?

    does Canada have something like the ADA? are these clubs in violation of any accessibility building codes?

    Good job Kiran. We have to keep pushing or they will not move. The human stairlifts may be well intentioned, but I have had too many close calls to consider it an acceptable alternative.

    Yes! The clubs in Victoria are awful for us wheelies! I won tickets to see Priestess at Sugar a while ago, but had to cut the night short because after being lifted up the stairs, I couldn't get to the washroom :S. I think all us young wheelers should get together and open a fun and fully accessible club!

    Great article. Those stairs look dangerous even for the able bodied clubbers.

    Congratulations Kiran! Great article, and thanks for your advocacy work. Even though I live far away, everytime something becomes more accessible it is my belief it benefits us all. Besides, you just never know when I might want to come to BC and have a drink!
