With the City years behind building crucial infrastructure; a growing population of well over a million people, and; a dearth of accessible public transportation away from the downtown core, a judge has ruled against an injunction to stop construction of a new LRT line.
One question for the sanctimonious Save the Cloverdale Footbridge folks: do you honestly think the City will be able to build any infrastructure without ever disturbing any aspect of the river valley?
Edmonton is growing. Edmonton is sorely lacking in light rail transit. Thousands of people in Mill-fucking-Woods will have the option to take the train rather than drive to work. Do you think it’s more important for old white people to walk to the Folk Fest than it is for thousands of people to have access to a train line?
As someone who lives IN the river valley, who bikes across the High Level Bridge every day to get to work, who appreciates the beauty an uniqueness of our beloved urban green space, I for the life of me cannot understand why such a fight is being put up. If these folks got their way, nothing in this city will ever get done.
