Demonstrating the benefit of building cycling infrastructure, Victoria has more than double the percentage of people who cycle to work, compared to any other city in Canada.
The Enderby-Splatsin section of the Shuswap North Okanagan Rail Trail project has been completed. It demonstrates the commitment of First Nations, regional, provincial and federal governments to connect communities and provide residents with a multi-use pathway that both preserves and showcases the region’s natural beauty. The same thing could happen with the Island Corridor if the people want it.
The federal government and the Province of British Columbia today announced the return of a short section of the Island Corridor to the Snaw-Naw-As First Nation. The Snaw-Naw-As have indicated strongly that they do not want rail going through their reserve and have stated that they want to see alternative uses for the corridor considered.
