Upcoming 21 Street “Black Top” should be a testy KUMBAYAH interlude between cyclists and seniors SHARING the same pathway!


Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre accessibility is on a collusion course with cyclists according to many seniors who use the SHSAC on a regular basis.  And what is so asinine about this is WHY the city wants to proceed with this BLACK TOP BIKE PATH when city council is proposing REDEVELOPMENT of these lands along with the HJCRC by campaign double dipper donor Darwin Properties.   Is it not conceivable this pathway may need to be altered, re-worked into the developer’s final pedestrian/traffic flow schematics.  Or is the mayor that convinced these lands will not be handed over to Darwin Properties.  i.e. The mayor and his Team Slate Collusion have already decided 4 to 3 in not having a new HJCRCentre at this location?  In the meantime our infamous mayor’s Black Necklace final link will not be deterred or denied…  all hail Commandant Mussatto’s dam bike legacy!

A consequence that should bare validity after October 20th city elections re: our city’s daily less than “2% cyclists.”

  1. I’m not sure why they couldn’t put the bike path BEHIND Silver Harbour between SH and the old rec centre. There’s very little traffic of any sort there and it could be done without levelling the senior’s garden or forcing seniors to cross a bike path to the street.

    The present route is nonsensical and forces seniors to walk further than they should have to.

  2. Your logical input is appreciated… It’s the mayor who wants the black necklace however temporary “linked” for his inglourious legacy.
