    Re-imagining our public spaces

     

    We’re all eager to get outside as the weather warms up.

    There are rumblings the Premier will soon give golf courses the green light.

    But this is a chance to go bigger than golf and reclaim our outdoor space.

     

    Around the world, countries from Scotland to Mexico are reimagining their cities to promote safe physical distancing and healthy living.

    Paris is spending over 300 million euros to create 650 kilometers of cycleways. New York is opening up 100 miles of city streets for walking and biking.

    As the skies clear from less car pollution, we have a chance to build a better Ontario.

    The Ford government should take the lead by helping cities renew their public spaces.

    Let’s invest in more bike lanes and sidewalks, not just more highways.

    Let’s expand city parks to help everyone’s physical and mental health.

    Let’s build neighbourhoods that protect green space rather than pave over it.

    Many decisions are ahead about how we recover from COVID-19.

    Sign our petition to put people and the planet at the heart of them.
