“Who’s driving”, the current blindness narrative in Canada, a Triple Vision Podcast on AMI Audio
Triple Vision Podcast on AMI Audio
On Triple Vision, hosts David Best and Hanna Leavitt bring you the history of Canadians who are blind, deafblind, and partially sighted, one story at a time, illuminating the challenges of the past, present, and future.
In this sixth episode of Triple Vision, we do something different. We invite six members of the community to talk about how they see the current blindness narrative in Canada.
What is wrong with the current narrative, and what should it be?
Who is controlling the current Canadian blindness story?
What should the future narrative sound like?
“The sad part is, we all look at the news as a news and information source, and it isn’t. It’s a drama. It’s a dramatic work and belongs in the arts. A lot of people go there for their information. Unfortunately if it bleeds, it leads. And when it comes to blindness, we don’t bleed so much, but my goodness the narrative is pity filled.”
Join us for this fascinating journey, exploring the dangers of the single narrative of the blindness story in Canada.
Triple Vision podcast called “Who’s driving”. 6 members of our Advisory committee talk about the current blindness narrative in Canada.

Thoughts About Disability Discourse – A Thread that Got Too Long For Twitter | mssinenomineblog
I want to talk a bit about how disability issues get discussed and addressed but first I want to specify that I am a white disabled woman who became disabled – the reasons why those things matter will hopefully become clear.

This explains why we get such horrible results from people we elect’
While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually, the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.
The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most politicians are ‘Post Turtles’.”
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was.
The old rancher said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle,”
The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain, “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of idiot put him up there to begin with.”
Best explanation of a politician I’ve ever heard.
