Let's turn the Island Rail Corridor into a multi-use trail that connects Vancouver Island
The E&N is a gorgeous corridor that stretches from Victoria to Courtenay and Parksville to Port Alberni. Let's turn it into a continuous, multi-use trail connecting our communities and First Nations.
A continuous trail preserves the E&N Corridor for future generations at minimal expense. It can also easily adapt to First Nations interests.
Studies estimate $95 million in annual economic benefit from the trail as well as significant physical and mental health benefits.
A non-motorised, multi-use trail eliminates ongoing carbon emissions, noise pollution and creates a more natural environment.
