Open letter to Whitehorse mayor and council:

Thank you to the people that voted to keep the Millennium Trail and Rotary Centennial Bridge non-motorized. Also thank you to the councillor who expressed his opinion why the bridge should be joint use. It is good to hear both sides of any discussion. I would believe if we had a city-wide vote on the issue that the vote would have gone the same way that it did at Monday night’s council meeting.

As Whitehorse grows, and as very likely the east side of the Yukon River will be developed, there will be a need for a second bridge. Let’s all encourage the planners to take into consideration that some offroad vehicle users would like an all-season crossing of the river.

I appreciate the many hours that you put in on city affairs.
