Two Way Traffic


Remember Tom Hanks in The Terminal? What movie is Yvonne Gaudet in -- or is it just another reality Show?

Yvonne Gaudet can get into the new Brampton Civic Hospital, she just can't get out.

The wheelchair-bound [sic] Gaudet can't reach all of the buttons on the automatic pay machine where parking stubs are inserted, money is paid, and the stubs are then spit out again and used at the gate to the parking garage to allow exit.

"I normally travel on my own," she pointed out. "That means I have to stay at the hospital."

She's only half joking. Gaudet is a member of the City of Brampton's Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC), which took a tour of the new hospital just before it opened and has produced a list of accessibility issues.
