Social Assignment - Equality rights

Storyboard Text

  • Hi! My name is Elizabeth Martin. I just recently moved to Walkerville School in Toronto. I'm on a wheelchair because both of my legs are paralyzed.
  • How am I suppose to get in the school?
  • Sorry, we don't have any wheelchair access for you.
  • But your supposed to have wheelchair access by law.
  • We're not required to have any wheelchair access for students. Get a student to help you in the school.
  • My equality rights have been ignored by my school. My school won't help me out with any wheelchair access. 
  • Narrator: Elizabeth decides to write a complaint to the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Her complaint got accepted.
  • Thank you! I really appreciate it.
  • Elizabeth, we will talk to the school about your complaint.
  • Thank you so much! This means a lot to me.
  • Sorry Elizabeth for ignoring your equality rights. We've included elevators and ramps in the school now.
