“Why is there no braille?”

IMG_1839On Saturday, my eldest daughter and I headed through Lansdowne. She’s learning to ride her bike, so we were out an about the neighbourhood. Going through South Court between the Pavillion and the lawn (and, yes each part of the park has its own name), we came across the plaque dedicating the opening of the park last August (pictured left).

But, there was something missing.

My daughter (who is still learning to read), turned to me and asked, “Daddy, why is there no braille?”

It’s a good question. Sure, braille isn’t an official language. And sure, it’s just a plaque, not emergency information or anything. But it would make the park a little more welcoming and a little more accessible.

So, Mr. Mayor, why is there no braille?
