    If you don't mind me asking, where do you live? Do you have kids at home with cars? Do you own a boat on a trailer? I certainly hope that you or any of your family members don't park on the road cause I may have to park in front of your house for a few days or months so you know how it feels. Hope you never have friends or family over to your house because they may have to park on the road. Be careful what you say when it's not your neighborhood or it doesn't affect you. People are watching 🙂

    First off I am pro bike lanes. But this proposed plan down this street will hinder the 700 kids that attend the school as well as the streets surrounding the area as being a french immersion school with no bus service parking is already limited. I ask that you all take a moment to bike down in September to see the chaos that is 123rd street at 8:30am and 2:20pm. This is a HUGE factor in the planing for the street and making it safe for all abilities (as we do have children and parents/guardians with physical disabilities attending and picking up) This is more then just bike lanes its about the safety of all who use this street. Taking away a portion of the park to make parking is also taking away from our future (our childrens) learning as the school uses the adjacent park daily for learning. Please look at all sides of this proposed project and lets try to find a solution that works for EVERYONE.

    Hi Katie. Thanks also for your interest in my blog post. I'm happy to hear again that you're pro bike lanes. You already told me that on facebook. There is actually bus service. Line C43 serves 123 Ave. I agree safety is a huge concern when so many parents need to drive their kids to school and the cars cause so much chaos. The issue though is cars, it's not bike lanes. Bike lanes will make it safer for everyone: for pedestrians, for cyclists AND for cars. They'll slow people down, and they'll make it easier for people to cross at intersections as the crossing distance is reduced. You know, if you just always make it easy for people to drive, and make it really difficult, or impossible for people to bike, the choice is obvious. Providing that choice – safe walking and safe cycling – will help at least a number of families/students to get to school without a car, which will reduce the need for parking. Having to provide enough space for hundreds of cars for just half an hour or so on school days leaves most of that space unused for much of the day, when it could be available 24/7, 365 days a year, to enable people to make the choice to use their two wheels to get somewhere, not only to school, but to see their friends, to go shopping, to go to work…
