Wheelchair Seating was Not acceptable


Windsor – On a recent outing for the Windsor film festival we decided to view a film at the Windsor School of Creative Arts Performance Hall inside the former Armouries. The wheelchair seating in this hall is a joke.

There is only a six-foot area for wheelchairs and this was to accommodate three wheelchairs, I was informed. We had one and for us it was difficult.

There is also only one seated chair made available, so I was able to sit next to my husband. But if anyone else was to attend and require the wheelchair space, oh well, can’t sit with your friend or spouse.

If they actually tried to allow three wheelchairs to fit into this designated space it would also lead to blocking the staircase, which is against the fire code.

You would think with $32.6 million spent on the building’s renovations the wheelchair seating arrangements would have been better thought out in the performance hall. Andrew and Stacia Bryan, Windsor
