New Government Brings Opportunity for Improvements to Cycling and Walking
John Horgan and Bowinn Ma visit James Wilson at Obsession Bikes
The results from the survey sent out by the BC Cycling Coalition to parties during the election campaign indicate that both the NDP and the Green Party are willing to support an Active Transportation Plan, which would include cleaner and more sustainable transportation options including cycling and walking.
Please write Premier Horgan to let him know you support increased investment in cycling
The NDP have promised to that they will be "committed to making cycling, walking and other forms of active transportation safer and more accessible, and we will work with communities to determine what investments are needed."
The Green Party have made similar promises, with commitments to "develop criteria for sustainability analysis of transportation investments and prioritize investments that promote transportation choices with a low carbon footprint, such as cycling"
While this is a good starting point, there is still much work that needs to be done before concrete results can be achieved. With a new government in place, there is a very real opportunity for change. Please take a moment to write a letter to your elected officials showing your support for increased investment in cycling.
