Green Pathway

Many of you have asked about the crowd by the school on Lanark Avenue last Saturday 3rd. It was a celebration party! Finally we will have a walking path along Beechgrove from the parkway to Westboro Station. It is expected to open sometime in September.

 

Special thanks to our elected representatives: MP Yasir Naqvi and Councillor Katherine Hobbs for navigating through the bureaucracy and getting the funding.

 

As Yasir Naqvi said (in jest) at the celebration, if the cost of this project was $1 million it might have been easier to get but being a small sum our bureaucrats were left bewildered.

 

And a special thank you, as always it would not have been possible without the help of our neighbours led by Catherine Casserley for contacting and sending monthly reminders to our elected representatives.

 

A job well done to everyone concerned, and very soon for all to use and enjoy.
