Some of the NIMBY things actually startle me. There was a plan for a bike-trail across Churchill Park in behind George R Allan school in Westdale. This would mean that families and children would be able to avoid king and main all the way from the Rail Trail (rail-trail -> Binkley neighborhood -> McMaster -> Westdale -> this bike trail -> Glen -> the bridge) all the way to Fortinos Plaza.

Obviously, being a resident of Westdale with small children and an avid cyclist, that excited me. Sadly, when I contacted the city to ask about it, I got "Yes, that planned trail was cancelled about five years ago - perhaps 2003 or 04..? The plan met with significant opposition form some area residents".

Somebody seriously thinks a bike-path through a park is a terrible idea? Because it happens to pass close to a playground or something?

A bike path. Seriously.
