“For about 10 years, I've been an independent filmmaker and for a while, I enjoyed a fantastic quality of life exploring my city, using the trains, buses, and going to coffee shops, bars, and restaurants.
Fast-forward to today, my experience of my city is entirely different. Unexpectedly, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and lost the ability to walk over the last five years. Now I’m using a motorized scooter . This is not the urban center knew and loved; barriers abound, options are limited. Only a handful of buildings are accessible.
Surprisingly, even government buildings such as the local post office are inaccessible. Over the past five years, as my ability to walk has faded, my neighbourhood has “faded” as well. Without access to buildings, my community involvement declined, and so did my quality of life.” Jason DaSilva, Creator of AXSmap and Filmmaker
