Accessibility in Winnipeg

Episode Description

The gateway to western Canada is a heritage gem featuring a vibrant art scene. From the famous ‘windiest’ intersection at Portage and Main, to the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights , to the wildly popular Forks river junction we watch a blind millennial entrepreneur, a law student in a wheelchair, and a blind photographer stretch the boundaries of what’s possible in Winnipeg.
