The WBCA has pursued this issue with Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre and a meeting with the superintendent responsible for the Centre Jules Leger is anticipated in the near future. The Centre Jules Leger is a school for the deaf administered by the province and the fence enclosing the property is maintained for the safety of their students.
We are looking for a solution whereby the fence line would be moved to make the former pathway available for pedestrian access. This pathway would benefit not only the residents of Ferndale and Selby as a shortcut to the transitway, but also of Selby, Beechgrove and Lanark as a more pleasant walk to the NCC pathway by the River at the end of Ferndale.
Please encourage your neighbours to add their comments and we will forward all of them to our provincial representative Yasir Naqvi. There is strength in numbers and we hope to have this green pathway opened
