Statement by Leshia Knopf
Bike lanes are a win on every level. They make cyclists safer, which increases the amount of cyclists, which helps our environment, our health, and our communities. Now is the time to put a lane on Cannon Street - between PanAm, the GO Station and the Bike Share program, there is no better time. The city has already declared it a priority, but has attached no timeline. If we don't get a lane for 2015, it may be 10 years before Hamilton will have a safe East-West corridor for cycling. It's good for our health, it's good for our city, and it's good for the environment. There is no downside! Yes We Cannon - Bike Lanes 2015!
