Permanent location

This intervention is permanently located at the address:

Reject this work

The proposed “standard” must be rejected.

This process will result in a human-rights complaint

This entire “standardization” process is a non-starter and will result in a complaint to the Canadian Human Rights Commission alleging unequal treatment on the basis of disability. That in itself will torpedo the process. And don’t worry: Everyone with any authorial or editorial role in creating these failed standards will be identified and named as a respondent.

These “standards” are no such thing and will never be implemented.
