What we're doing

Getting around St. John's, NL, on foot on the sidewalks is can be pretty tricky - from vehicles that won't stop at crosswalks, to clearing snow, and obstructions in the sidewalk itself, it's not really a cake walk. And so, we're trying to pull all of the information we can get together in one place. We're hoping it will help City Council and those who keep an eye on them - you, the voters - informed about what's going on, and how we could do better to foster safe walking for all.
