It’s STM vs. SPVM in this contest to see who’s more charming to the city’s residents, especially those with limited mobility.
I asked who gets this report. He dodged my question. He asked what my disability is. I asked him about protocol when a complaint is filed. He told me that I should consider taking Transport Adapté. I repeated how scary it was to be locked on a bus with an angry, aggressive man. He offered to drive me home. I declined. We got out of the cruiser, out of earshot of his bitchy young white Quebec-supremacist lady cop partner with a swishy ponytail. He told me his mother is “handicapped” too, that she uses a wheelchair and she has a hard time getting anywhere, and it’s not just the STM. He said that this is a hard moment and it will pass. I said yes, discrimination is everywhere.
(Thanks for the submission, subtractics!)
