My colonoscopy cancelled in BC because I have MS

Here's my situation for which I'm pursuing a solution - tell me what you think.
In the middle of December 2014 I was turned down by VIHA (our local health authority in Victoria BC)  for a colonoscopy because I have MS with bladder, mobility and spasticity issues which I was told cannot be  dealt with by the facility/team doing colonoscopies at our local hospitals.
