The Halifax Cycling Coalition is organizing a petition in support of a “crosstown connector” or “active transportation corridor” through the Halifax peninsula, designed to connect the north and south ends.

HCC organizer Steve Bedard discusses the route of the corridor, the role of the city's Active Transportation Committee, what a corridor would look like and why the HCC is advocating for one.

More info on the proposed corridor, including maps, is available at the HCC's website: www.cyclehalifax.ca

Copies of the petition are available at Mountain Equipment Coop, Idealbikes, Cyclesmith, Bicycles Plus, Two if by Sea, and the Dalhousie Bike Centre.
