Motion To Kingston City Council to Restore Access Bus

I have good news to report. This Tuesday, June 16, 2009, there will be a motion before the Kingston City Council in support of restoring the Kingston Access Bus.

This is a huge milestone because Kingston is not in a postion to tell the management or union what to do. The Kingston Access Bus is a non-profit charitable organization and Labour Code has laws which govern the amount of outside interference that can take place during a labour dispute. Therefore, the best the city can do is encourage both sides to find a resolve.

After the motion is presented, I will be given an 5 minute opportunity to speak to the motion and the impact the strike has had on the disabled passengers who must rely on the services of specialized transit. My thinking cap is now on.
