Nanaimo-North Cowichan NDP MLA and cyclist Doug Routley advocating safe streets inclusion in party platform
"We, as cyclists, pedestrians, runners, wheel and power chair users all have rights as citizens to use the roads with provisions that protect us.

The clip accompanies a larger public discussion Ottawa has been having all year about new parking rules. The existing zoning codes, established half a century ago, require developers to create a certain amount of parking based on the type of building in the works—the sort of “parking minimums” found in so many cities. Ottawa wants to reduce or eliminate those outdated minimums for development that occurs in inner urban areas or near transit corridors, in line with a new city plan adopted in 2013.
