Hi Jackie,
Do you know if the city has any plans to connect the Abernathy bike lane at 224th to the Golden Ears Way bike lane?

An up and coming roadie. Sure, you can send me update emails. good to hear that is going to happen as that stretch of old Dewdney is so narrow.

Replying to your long ago message about my CarFree Day experience in Vancouver.  

Yes, I lived in Vancouver for a dozen years and was directly involved in the expansion of the first CarFree Day into the 4-site experience it is today.   I made a film about that "Unleashing", which has been used to teach CFD's unique organizational model for mass public events.  I was also asked to present this film (20 mins) at a World CarFree Cities Conference now nearly a decade ago.

I finally realized Vancouver was anti-green, anti-heritage, anti-middle class, anti-working class, anti-human, and the biggest carbon polluter per capita in Canada.  (Think embodied carbon!)  The city is also dying socially and politically, and is obviously totally unaffordable.  

So I moved to Coquitlam two years ago to see if suburban life with an electric car could possibly be better, greener, more fun, and affordable.  I've known Gerry for years as we both started Transition movements.  GETI was then the closest to me and I went to several meetings. 

Now I've just moved to Courtenay, where housing costs 1/5 of the Lower Mainland, people are nicer, the towns more close to nature and both food and energy resilient, and there is honestly lots of hope.  City Hall here is doing all of the right things and developers do not own Council.  It is just a healthier place.  

That's all.
