In Vancouver, Canada, they're banning doorknobs. Well, the old, substandard doorknobs. In their place, there's a mandate for door handles. Which are more accessible. For people with some sort of disability, I imagine. Severe arthritis, perhaps? I don't know. The article doesn't say. Perhaps it's rude to inquire.
"The bylaw is not retroactive, so residents won’t have to get rid of doorknobs they already have in their homes."
If you like your knobs,
they may be grandfathered in.
If that's the case,
just chalk it up as a win!
