Our local Council have offered nothing and I mean nothing to the community they are supposed to be serving especially during this lockdown and beyond.
There’s nothing for the ‘handicapped business owner’ yes, I’ll put it that way because that’s exactly how some see us and the language they would use – behind our backs rather than to our faces.
When we try to reach out to help or offer our voice in community matters, our ‘crippled’ hands are side-swiped with the corporate response which is to ignore.
Northland Inc are no better. Our economy was never doing well – even before Covid19 hit our shores.
Amazing what people readily accepted regarding directives for business and our local economy. Northland Inc just posted a whole lot of links to websites – enough to shut people up because they neither had the skill or expertise to deal with a massive business crisis. You wouldn’t believe what their unempathetic response at the early stages of lockdown.
Some of us will be changing the things we should never have accepted in the first place. Communities own different regions, not Councils, Councillors, and right wing Organisations like Northland Inc.
Disabled people aren’t part of the problem, how can we be when our voices are seldom heard.
