Imagine you’re a Park Commissioner in Vancouver. You want to make sure seniors have a voice in any decision that affects car traffic in Stanley Park. For many, that’s their access.
But you have a choice to make: Will you at the same time encourage seniors to cycle more? And do something to make that happen.
More like this:
This is Michael Alexander a few days before his eighth decade, on the Arbutus Greenway. A pause, a nod to the metaphorical flowers along the way. This is a senior blissfully engaged in the life of Vancouver, loving the city we’ve become. You know, because of that bike stuff.
And then he gives back more. He’s a healthy citizen in every respect.
So how as Commissioner do you do both: open parks to traffic and get more seniors on bikes?
You’ll be deciding in the next few weeks. What would you tell us?
