The idea for @jooayapp was born through @CIHR_IRSC dissemination grant stakeholder forums. I'm glad we went full 'Knowledge-to-Action' cycle but more 'action' than scientific articles on this one, but happy to see this @jmirpub! formative.jmir.org/2021/9/e23877

According to the latest report from @angusreidorg, the majority of Canadians believe there has not been enough attention paid to how best to support persons with disabilities in Canada. This #Elxn44, let’s change that. ➡️ bit.ly/38PKLn5

"I wish all business owners knew that guide dog handlers have full access rights. Many either aren’t aware of the laws, or they are aware but still think it’s acceptable to ask us to leave if the situation doesn’t seem manageable for them.” #GuideDogChampions

On Saturday on Canadian History Ehx, I'm looking at The Man In Motion Tour. For 26-months, Rick Hansen circled the world (40,000 km), in his wheelchair, raising $26 million for spinal cord research. In May 1987, a turd named Craig gave him a giant cheque from his town.
