Candidate name 2. How are you going to support it in our community?

Fernand Bidal

Making sure that when we are going to provide a new or upgrading an old route or road that we take into account everyones concern and preoccupations.

Kevin Brault

Encourage the use of Transit and advocate at council for better transit coverage for our area. More transit riders help traffic congestion and lessen the burden on infrastructure. This coupled with sensible investment in bike lanes and other infrastructure for those who can cycle and or walk long distance is low cost transportation in both environmental and economical terms.

René Lapierre

Once at the council table I believe we need to see action, in regards to better transportation. I think and idea could be to have satellite transfer stations in the outlying areas so more buses could stay in the those communities and bring them to a satellite depot who then has transfers for 1 bus back to town. This could increase the frequency and number of buses leaving the outlying communities to the City core.

A policy that sees bike lanes on busy streets, proactively determining where the future hubs will be (ei when developing a new subdivision you know which rd will be the main thoroughfare) and updating the current infrastructure will ensure people can use alternate means of transportation. I do not support every quiet side street getting a sidewalk and bike lane. We need to make wise investment in heavier traffic areas. I am very much in support of looking into the cost of packed gravel bike lanes to help cyclist safely access some of our roads such as MR 80 (69N) safely.
