This is what a proper detour looks like for #ActiveTransportation.

Notice the #accessibility ramp, helpful signage, the detour is direct and logical, priority given to people over cars.

All too often in #Ottawa, sidewalks and cycleways are just marked "closed" forcing people onto roads with fast moving cars.

Alternatively, they are forced to cross the road with no priority crossing or confusing detour is set up that adds several city blocks to a 🚴‍♂️🧍♿ trip.
Yesterday, this sidewalk was blocked as 100's of kids in 3 area schools were trying to pass through this area. Car and truck traffic still had full use of the road though.

Many @HaltonDSB schools suffer from intense traffic at bell times. Parents/guardians & students need to recognize this as an issue and must be an integral part of forming solutions.…
I challenge every walk-to-capable @HaltonDSB School Council to form an #activetransportation standing committee that includes student voice, which will work actively/relentlessly toward creating solutions for significantly increasing walking/biking/scootering to their school.
Engage your school community, find out what the barriers are in your school community and work with the community to find solutions to overcome them.

This #ClimateEmergency report outlines 6 Big Moves for Council to direct staff to pursue & come back w. comprehensive/costed plans. Plus 53 Accelerated Actions to move on now. The targets are strong & won’t be easy. This is what governing in line with the science looks like.
