Mayoral candidate Kent Hehr was unable to participate in a mayors’ debate last night because there was no wheelchair access for him at the Oakridge Community Centre.

While forum organizers contacted Hehr with apologies about the accessibility issue, Hehr said it’s an issue that needs to be addressed.

“This is not just about me. This is about all of the people who have mobility challenges taking part in community activities,” Hehr said.

“As mayor I would make this a priority issue to improve and ensure a higher quality of life for all Calgarians.”
