Toronto businesses get free ramps — and new customers in wheelchairs
The conversation is relevant to small business owners, who must make their establishments accessible by 2025.
“There are businesses out there that cannot afford to construct a permanent modification to their storefront,” Anderson says. “This is a very cheap, efficient solution that might be the answer to the mom and pop coffee shops.”
The project was given the thumbs-up by City Council and lauded by Councillor Adam Vaughan. The portability of the ramps means no permit is required. They are light, with a convenient rope handle on one side, so they can easily be brought in at night.
Clare Raman, of Kid Culture in the Junction, says she was pleased to get StopGap’s offer.
“It was something we were going to do, seeing as we’re a children’s store,” Raman says, referring to her customers with strollers. “We’ve had great reactions to it, everybody thanks us for it.”
Anderson wants no proprietary claim to the idea. The StopGap website (stopgapblog.blogspot.ca) describes how to make the steps for community projects.
I LOVE IT
Everyone tells you that you’ll find someone. They think that this makes you feel better, but it really just reminds you that you have someone to find. That you’re not good enough on your own.
I like when people explain things that have always bothered me but I could never figure out why.
