Earlier this year Bakerlaw featured a blog post about a Canadian Transportation Agency decision regarding rail accessibility. The case was about the lack of adequate tie-down spaces on VIA Rail trains which results in persons with mobility scooters needing to travel separately. We characterized the decision as “favourable but weak” (you can read the post here (link)).

Since that decision, VIA Rail has sought leave to appeal from the Federal Court of Appeal. Our clients were featured on CBC discussing the case. You can read the article and learn more about their story here (link).
