Disability Awareness Week Kicks Off

This week is disability awareness week and Common Council is taking part. 

Council is holding a town hall meeting on Wednesday night at the Loch Lomond Villa to hold an open discussion with disability groups in the city. 

Barry Freeze with the city's Ability Advisory Committee says the week is about drawing attention to the challenges faced by those with disabilities that people might not necessarily consider. 

A disability simulation exercise is also being held at Millidgeville North School to give students the chance to experience what it might be like to have a disability.
