I can appreciate the concerns that have been expressed.
As someone running for city council this election, I would like to understand
more about these views - and hopefully it will give others an opportunity to respond as well.
Do you view the expenditure decisions by council as a mistake, or is it more that you view the spending decisions to be insensitive to higher
priorities of the time? There is a difference.
At the end of the day, whether it was fully supported or not supported, we have bike lanes which now exist and which will be used by residents in the future. By itself - if what we have
left is dedicated bike lanes - that is not a wholly bad end outcome, is it? Its legacy is positive in one sense.
Can you view these decisions as positive in the long run? Or are these decisions all negative in your view? That is what I would like
I do not personally ride bicycles, and - I would not have thought to prioritize this direction of spending myself if I were councillor - it is just not a significant part of my life. But for some residents, it is. Now that it has been
given some priority by other interests, is it that bad in the long run? I would like to understand your views better.
