Whilst out walking last week, I noticed an interesting difference in City pathway plowing. From Beech south to Carling, the multi-use path (a MUP, in city jargon; a bike path to the rest of us) gets plowed. Presumably this is because of the O-Train station at Carling:
The O-Train path is always gorgeous, lined (for now) with forty year old trees and established green verges bordering the stonedust path.
But turn the other way, look north, and Janus does not plow it at all:
It is still a city path — oops, MUP. The NCC stoop-and-scoop sign is a leftover from the 1960-2000 period when it was an NCC path. The City now owns it since they bought the rail corridor where the O-Train runs.
When (if??) the bike path is completed from Dow’s Lake to the Ottawa River, maybe we can get it plowed all the way.
