Trying to get the lay of the land I've contacted representatives of several institutions who should/do have an interest in safety along Governor's Road.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13 I left messages for

  • The prinicipal at St. Bernadettes
  • Highland Secondary (looking for the Highland Parents Council)
  • City Traffic's Ron Gallo (Director of signals)
  • Jessica Brennan (Public School Trustee)
  • Helene Tanguay and Brian Hollingsworth who are staff/consultants on the city's Transportation master plan.


  • Jessica Brennan e-mailed back and left her phone number to discuss this issue (playing phone tag right now)
  • The principal at St. Bernadettes called back Friday when I was out. I called Monday morning and left another message.
I actually began searching for information from the city on Governor's Road traffic issues back in February 2006. The lines of communication have not been easy to follow, and I'm still waiting for many questions to be answered by city staff, including the following questions from an October 6, 2006 e-mail:
  • Who are the city staff working on design?
  • Is there going to be an EA process?
  • Is traffic calming being considered (beyond the flashing lights)?
  • How is the public to be involved in the process?
  • The GRIDS drawings for this area showed bicycle lanes or some such treatment - is this being done now for the new school?
