This letter should be of particular interest to every senior or every person with a senior in their immediate sphere of interest.
I have been a victim of outright “ageism” or an unjust attack on my civil rights based that on the fact that at 71, I had a stroke.
This stroke occurred two years ago, but every day has been excellent. Despite that my doctor gave me an evaluation that said my eyesight had fully recovered, I was ordered to take a driving test by ICBC.
After 60 years of across Canada, I have a perfect driving record and have never had one speeding ticket. Despite this I took three tests in Chilliwack and Hope, I supposedly failed all three. The testers showed a complete bias, gave me incomplete instructions and even lied in written reports.
Three tested yielded resulted that were not only inaccurate, but there were outright biased. I realize it is important to get bad drivers off the road, but I am not one. ICBC now tells me that I have lost my license and wants me to ask my doctor to retest my physical skills, something he has already done. I ask you to contact your MLA to address this injustice.
Please don’t wait until it happens to you and yours.
