Non-Resident Attitude Towards the Resident Concerns
February 8, 2016
One theme that we residents on the route have been dealing with is an abundance of entitlement mentality coming from cyclists who do not even live in the neighbourhood.
Our parking, use, and safety issues come second to their ability to have yet *another* dedicated biking space, never mind the existing greenway running parallel to the proposed route, less than a mile away – and the multitude of bike lanes in the area that are all but unused.
This post and resulting COMPLETE dismissal of personal safety concerns happened on a Facebook group about the Greenway pilot project today. Note that Brett Von Schlosser lives nowhere near north, yet feels compelled to write off the safety of resident women as “A personal preference”.
