Re: “Finally, some candidate sparring in District 11: Spryfield—Sambro—Prospect Road

Tim, I think your experience with the bus system is revealing of what is my #1 concern in this district. It's ridiculous that we have no option for bus commuting (outside of the 1.5 hour walk you mentioned). In HRM you can get a bus from Tantallon, Beaver Bank or the Airport, but I live 17 km from downtown and have no option! We need a city bus that goes at least to the Prospect Rd. Community Centre, if not the whole Peggy's Cove loop.

A few years ago I attended a community meeting where our current councilor Reg Rankin stated that he would never advocate for a bus system in this area because it would increase property taxes. It's a discouraging attitude that I hope is not shared by any of our current candidates.

I'm also in agreement with any improvements for cycling this loop. I'd also LOVE to see a multi-use trail (for bikers and walkers) maintained between Sambro and Prospect Road, traversing the Long-Lake provincial Park. This would be a great way to unite these communities and a possible commuting alternative.
