We are voting Yes for in the BC Transit Referendum for transit expansion because it is the right thing to do: for ourselves, for our children, for our grandchildren, for our city, and for our planet. For a relatively small annual cost to each household, we can expand transit and ensure that Vancouver continues to be a liveable region for years to come.
The Barnet Highway Bike Lane connects Burnaby and Port Moody in BC, Canada. It’s a wide bike lane on the side of a highway. It’s not separated, so it is not safe in bad weather or after dark. However, I enjoy the Barnet Highway bike lane for cycling training and working on my hill climbing abilities while enjoying amazing views and scenery.
The Sea to River Route simply STOPS at a dead end, instead of pushing through to the new industrial area on North Fraser. That leaves hundreds of cyclists who work in the area with no safe route to get to work.
Burnaby’s Sea to River Bike Route is a disgrace – it needs to be improved before someone dies. The bike route from North to South in Burnaby is poetically named the Sea to River Bike Route. I could suggest a lot of other names. “Death-defying route” springs to mind. As does “Suicide Run bike trail.” And “Are you Kidding Me?” The kicker is that it just ENDS in the middle of nowhere. Hello, City of Burnaby, news flash: there is NO RIVER at the foot of McKay. There’s a dead end. So why is it called Sea to River? Shouldn’t it be “Sea to Dead End in the Middle of Nowhere?”
