— Canada pushes out deaf actors

There was a newspaper story, titled:

Canada is failing its Deaf artists

It cited Dawn Birley as an example.
Born in Canada and a graduate of
Gallaudet, she has lived in Finland
for the past 20 years – where
conditions were much better for
her as deaf actress as opposed to
living in Canada!


— advice for deaf in hospitals during pandemic

Make sure there is a sign posted on the wall
saying that you are deaf. Make sure you bring
your iPhone or Smartphone (with battery
recharger). Make sure you have VRI apps
on your iPhone. Make sure the hospital
wi-fi system works. Make sure you have
pens and notepads. Make sure you have
extension cord in case your bed is too
far from the wall outlet. If doctors
and nurses give you hard time, demand
to meet with the hospital top administrator.
