Several people have asked me about wheelchair accessible balloon flights in the UK. I've found one company that offers these trips, but they do come in at £499 - for anyone. Maybe someone could set up a fund to give disabled children the chance to take-off on a trip of a lifetime? Richard Branson are you listening Sir?

The US's ADA requires customers and in this case passengers to adopt a litigious approach to accessibility. This is a slow and ineffective way to ensure businesses including Amtrak become accessible to ALL passengers.  The AODA in Ontario takes a broader approach to accessibility. The only thing missing is a Provincial leader who backs the AODA ACT fully in both words and actions. #JESleeth Optimal Peformance
