|A great initiative thatís been implemented throughout Canada, except Southern Ontario, is the Safe Routes to School program. Just as its title indicates, this program provides safe routes for school children to walk to school, as well as provide volunteers to walk with them.
|The goal of this program is to reduce the vehicles around schools as well as reduce the vehicular traffic in the city during school drop-off and pick-up times. We support this program because this will obviously reduce the over-all vehicle emissions emitted by our city.|
|Concerned citizen Steve Kapusta has prepared a PowerPoint presentation outlining the programís goals and how to implement this program for your school. We are providing a link here to the PowerPoint presentation as well as a PDF version. We urge you to get involved and start a Safe Routes to School program in your area.|
