Bridge is better somewhere else | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

I oppose a pedestrian/cylist bridge crossing Highway 305 at Vineyard Lane because it serves only the commuting cyclist, a narrow segment of the population.

I support a High School Road bridge crossing!

It serves a broader cross-section of residents, from babies in strollers to senior citizens, and also the cycling commuter.

It also links two markets: shops, banks, library, church, schools and, soon, the new city park at Sakai.
