Where upon Metro transit arrived at agreements to change a numerous number of their policies and activities that were inviolation.I am now testifying here that there after Halifax Metro transit’s executives, managers or supervisors did not honor the agree-ments or change their horrific attitude of violating my human rights.And it fact things got much worse and the management of Halifax metro transit engaged in a stalking campaign by follow-ing me around Halifax in their overly luxurious S U Vs, You can read more on that topic by reading my previous articleabout the
“Bus driver refuses to let me off the bus”
That event resulted in one of the metro transit supervisors applying the unconstitutional provincial act
“Protection of property Act
’ and banned me from all Halifax Public transit properties and services for the next six monthsthat included Access-a-bus and blocking me from getting to medical appointments and more..That same supervisor showed up today at the Mumford terminal and with a smile on his face he announced in front of a busload of passengers that he was the one that had previously banned me when I had engaged in a previous fight for my humanrights when the driver refused to let me off the bus at the old Dartmouth bus terminal.This supervisor again with a smile, announced that he was looking forward to when he was going to have a look at thevideos of the events of today and would then ban me again. Not once did he want to know or care about what was happening today and why he was here. He showed very clearly thatagain he cares not one little bit at showing me any respect and made it very clear that he cared not that I was stranded in thefreezing cold sitting in my wheelchair freezing for two and a half hours. He only cared to ban me again because I had tomake a protest by telling the drivers that I would block the buses passage if they did not do something to help me get out of the freezing cold.I had to do something drastic as my legs had now frozen and I had lost feeling in them.But this supervisor just wants to ban me again.So now, below I will explain more of what led to my being stranded and which will explain more the meaning of the title of this report.I understand now after my conversation with the Union rep why this situation of the bus drivers involvement in their partici- pation in endangering the lives electric wheelchair users has been going on forever.I advised the rep that by my notifying him now that he could not plead ignorance to this situation. I also made it clear to himthat ignorance of the law is never an accepted defense in a court of law.I now advise the Amalgamated Public Transit Union to seek legal advise on this situation.And please remember the universally accepted ruling of the world court at the Nuremberg Trials of Germany Crimes of war.Where it was stated that following the orders of superiors, where those orders were wrong, harmful or even deadly to therights of human beings were not an acceptable defense. In other words just because your superior tells you or gives you per-mission to do harm or injustice knowingly or unknowingly to others IS NOT A DEFENSE.I advised the union rep that the bus drivers have a responsibility and duty to inspect and make sure that their buses will besafe to operate to ensure the protection of all its passengers.But in defense of all the great and wonderful drivers that I have often had the wonderful opportunity of having intellectualconversations with that,I understand that bus drivers are not mechanics, are not engineers, are not trained on how to safely secure electric wheel-chairs, are not advised on how to, or to even inspect that the equipment for wheelchairs is safe, sound and properly main-tained.I understand that the drivers believe and expect that Halifax Metro Transit is being prudent and is not deceiving the drivers.
