Scott Edward Bremner was born in Scarborough, Ontario in 1985. His birth was premature by two months and he was later diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Diplegia.
Bremner was born into the family of Ron, Kathryn and brother, Jeff, older by almost eight years. He had a happy childhood, wrestling with his brother, writing stories in his room and watching television and movies in between therapy sessions.
He attended three schools over eight years as a result of inaccessibility. Being a wheelchair user in a mostly inaccessible province meant staying indoors a lot. This led to him becoming a massive film fan and learning as much as he could about moviemaking and scriptwriting.
He is currently writing a screenplay and is the author of Durability: Braving the non-disabled World.
When he was young Scott's mother became a fierce advocate for the rights of children and youth with disabilities and, as a result, inspired him to follow in her footsteps.
Years later, Bremner created, produced and hosted two award-winning cable television programs featuring issues that people with disabilities faced in their communities and province.
He interviewed expert guests on a variety of topics including mental health, cancer research, Parkinson’s, and provincial accessibility legislation. He was honoured to interview Rick Hansen and David Onley, the former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.
Bremner has made over ninety television appearances.
He has served as a member on several accessibility committees, offering his opinion and knowledge of best practices. Graduating with honours from the Journalism-Print and Broadcast Program of Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario, he has written for several publications including Abilities Magazine.
Durability is Bremner’s first book. It is part biography, part advice guide and part political and current day history. He wrote the book to pass on what he has learned, and to educate and inform people with disabilities and the non-disabled.
Bremner is single and lives in Oshawa, Ontario, east of Toronto.
