Walking School Bus Petition

By February 6, 2006No Comments

At the first council meeting for 2006 I presented a petition on behalf of residents calling for the restoration of funding for Walking School Bus.

I personally support the program and the aims of reducing traffic near schools and encouraging children to walk in a safe and friendly environment.

Reducing the number of cars on our road during school hours will help protect the safety of school children and avoid the constant traffic jams that occur during school hours. Furthermore with cases of obesity on the increase it is imperative that activites such as walking are encouraged.

I will keep residents informed on the progress of this petition. A report will need to prepared for council to re-consider the Walking School Bus program.
