Civic Engagement Debate: should skateboards be allowed in bike lanes?

See a great video on student engagement at City Hall here! Recently, Simon Pottery’s Grade 5 class from Molly Brant PS researched and debated whether skateboards should be allowed in bike lanes.  With encouragement from Councilors Jim Neill and Mary Rita Holland, the students developed a petition which was presented to Council.  City Staff are now considering their proposal. They may not be old enough to vote, but our students learned that you’re never too young to make a difference.
