Tue, 04/27/2010 - 14:31 What? geoffrey It is very good of the city Wed, 04/28/2010 - 12:03 It is very good of the city and vendors to memorialise the site of Darcy Allen Sheppard's murder with granite paving. However it would be much more appropriate if the city saw fit to include bicycling infrastructure in the remodelling including proper 2.5 m separated bike lanes and bike parking. That said I can't help but wonder the affect of a few years freeze/thaw cycles combined with city sidewalk plows on that same granite. Will the pavement heave and be subsequently chipped by the plows? Will the vendors pick up the tab on the potentially increased maintenance cost? How will these look striped with asphalt following utility cuts and how long will pedestrians be stuck tripping over the aftermath as the city, vendors and utilities fight over who picks up the tab? On another note, when will the province step up and begin educating motorists using their vehicles for violence can't and won't be tolerated? Or is the real message here that the well heeled can and do get away with maiming and murdering those perceived as less so?
