Retired engineer vs broken metro escalators

This CBC piece is somewhat incoherent, blurring together the story of a retired engineer annoyed about broken metro escalators with the wider issue of universal accessibility.

The key information – that a lot of the installed equipment is old, so getting parts is a problem – is in there, but the issue of putting elevators in all the stations is something that’s been discussed a lot. Everyone knows the STM cannot upgrade all the remaining stations at the same time. It isn’t even a story.
