Where I Stand
My thoughts on Markham
Below is a link to a recent news story to show that caring for our environment is an important matter.
Viva buses also recently built a bus-lane only road (Rapidway) on Highway 7. This happens to have a disadvantage to the people who want to ride it because although it may seem like a good idea, they have to cross the street into the middle to get in, instead of waiting on the side. Waiting on the sidewalk for the bus would be more safe and crossing the street to the middle just to get on the bus could be dangerous.
Having more trains or a light rails would be a better idea because they have a direct path. It may stop, but it won't take different routes.
I would say Markham should pay more attention to this issue as no one really makes an effort to talk about it.
In some cities, there are services where they remove snow from your driveway as well. This would benefit citizens because it can save lots of time from shoveling. Some people get hurt while shoveling because of all the work. They also have done things to prevent putting snow on your driveway while plowing the roads - by removing the windrow on the truck. Markham should consider these improvements and should give more attention to the services of snow removal in residential areas.
