bridging communities

The Pearl Street bridge became BBQ central as Gord kept the party-goers supplied with hot dogs and corn on the cob, while kids and adults created a bond with train engineers who noticed the people on the bridge and exchanged waves, while tooting their horns as they passed below.

Several pages of a petition to rebuild the pedestrian bridge at Poullete street west of Locke Street were signed, and will be delivered to ward one councillor Brian McHattie so he can navigate the needs of pedestrians in his ward through the maze of city hall politics.

Bridges bring people together, knitting neighbourhoods closer, and actions like the bridge party help people connect in a friendly environment, creating a renewed sense of community.

Sign the petition to rebuilt Poullete, and get out to walk more, hot dogs or not...
