Hmmm, so if our current state of bike lanes and sidewalks is more than sufficient to be considered top notch infrastructure, why don't we treat our roadways in the same manner? Almost everytime I plot a walking route through Google Maps in order to get somewhere I'm warned about the "lack of sidewalks or dangerous walking paths on this route". And that's just things like a simple walk from Dundurn to Westdale etc....

Imagine planning your route via car and being told that roadways don't exist or are just dirt paths? Bike lanes are virtually non-existent in Hamilton. Nonsensical is believing that certain people deserve to be treated better than others. I'm simply suggesting that our city provide equal access and equal ease of movement for everyone. I'd hate to live in a society where that is considered 'nonsensical'.
