Bill OWEN, 61: Street-level crusader
Bill OWEN fought to make Toronto more accessible
Patient, pragmatic teacher led battle for sloped curbs
By Catherine DUNPHY, Obituary Writer
Bill OWEN left his mark on every street corner in this city.
He was the paraplegic powerhouse who brought reluctant City Hall bureaucrats around to a commitment to install sloped curbs. A cautious, graduated commitment, but a commitment.
It was 1970 and for wheelchair users it was huge.
"It was the one thing we really wanted to get done," said Bill STOTHERS, then a journalist who worked with OWEN on behalf of a fledgling organization known as ALPHA -- Action League for Physically Handicapped Advancement.
"We really wanted to be able to get around, but back then you would have to go down the block to find a driveway to get across the street and dodge traffic and then find another driveway."
OWEN, who died of cancer October 13 at 61, was a teacher at Ryerson who had a very logical, focused, strong but non-confrontational style.
He never took his issues to the streets. He took them to meetings, many meetings, where he would present papers and listen and negotiate a way through, around and over any objections to installing curbs featuring a slope instead of a drop to the street.
"They had never seen someone like Bill at City Hall -- alert, well prepared, highly educated and articulate and they didn't like it. Nobody wants to change. They were forced into it. Bill pushed them," said his wife Lucille OWEN.
There were many thousands of uncut curbs in the city. A pragmatic OWEN proposed to bureaucrats they install the slopes gradually, as old curbs were being replaced.
"Toronto was the first major city in North America to have a curb program like this," said Lucille. "Now they are useful for everybody, for mothers with strollers and people with those wheeled walkers."
It was the beginning of a coming of age for people in wheelchairs. Society was in the midst of dynamic change, led by the women's and black equality movements, which had thus far eluded people with physical handicaps.
Lucille thinks that was because all kinds of medical personnel from doctors to occupational therapists -- had been the traditional spokespeople for them and that consequently many with physical handicaps were uncomfortable speaking up for themselves.
STOTHERS said many people in wheelchairs didn't appreciate what he and his friend were doing either.
"People were very concerned about that at that time. They still are in a lot of places. Nobody wanted people to be rocking the boat," he said from his home in California, where he is deputy director for the Center for an Accessible Society. "We were known as the two Bills, as the troublemakers."
And they weren't about to quit while they were ahead. In October 1971, they organized another first -- a transportation conference featuring politicians from the three levels of government. At first, it looked as if it might falter -- STOTHERS says he remembers a local politician at the time remarking that maybe people in wheelchairs just shouldn't come downtown -- until an editorial in the Toronto Star endorsed the conference and its agenda of developing a system of transportation for the physically handicapped.
That weekend, they debated the merits of a para-transit system or a completely accessible subway and bus system and decided to opt for the para-transit while working long-term for a fully accessible system.
Initially to be used only for work and medical appointments, Wheel-Trans eventually expanded its services to include transportation for any purpose.
"Bill started using it for work the minute it was operational," his wife said.
He had been paying $35 for cab fare to get to work before. But there were others whose physical limitations prevented them from even using a cab. Wheel-Trans meant they could tell a prospective employer that, yes, they did have reliable transportation. It was easier for them to get work. It became easier for them simply to go out more.
"You were just free to go," said Lucille.
Newfoundland-born OWEN was 22 and working outside Fredericton, New Brunswick, at a summer construction job between his first and second years of grad school at Queen's University when an air compressor got away and rolled over him.
He'd been a keen hockey player in high school and university, president of the Arts and Literary Society, associate editor of the newspaper and co-editor of the yearbook at Mount Allison University. But he used to say the day after his injury he realized he'd become a second-class citizen, unable to enjoy any of the rights and freedom he used to have.
His family was supportive and Queen's was willing to make all kinds of modifications to accommodate him. "You get those solutions prior to the days of realizing that these were rights and that the university should be prepared to handle disabled individuals on a system-wide basis, to anticipate (that) people with disabilities will come to university," he wrote later.
In the same article, he wrote about how people expected him to be able to do wheelies in his chair to negotiate curbs. "You coped with your disability by incorporating yourself into the community without making changes to it."
He came to Toronto to complete his graduate degree and moved into one of the few apartments in the city that could accommodate wheelchairs -- for the most part. He had to remove his bathroom door and replace it with a curtain to get in.
He used to say circumstances had necessitated he become a professional disabled person with a more aggressive personality than came naturally.
But he was persistent, serving for many years on a mayor's task force on the disabled and the elderly, of which he was also the chair, as well as being on the board of the March of Dimes, and the Canadian Paraplegic Association, among other organizations. OWEN also threw himself into his academic pursuits, travelling and living at the University of Kentucky for a while to work on his doctoral dissertation on the early American writer James Fennimore Cooper, his other great passion.
He retired from teaching in 2000.
"Thanks to Bill, we're a lot better off," said Lucille. "This is not just a wife talking. He was the driving force behind the curb cuts. He transformed our lives."
