Councillor to Table motion for additional Crossing guards

At today’s Transportation Committee, I will table a motion in support of the City of Ottawa funding all 16 warranted crossing guard positions as identified necessary by the City.

The City of Ottawa provides crossing guard services for children going to elementary schools at intersections that have met the criteria laid out by the Transportation Services Department with the City of Ottawa.

Today, I am asking that the City fund all the crossings that have met the necessary criteria, and warrant a crossing guard, as funding 10 out of the 16 locations seems to be a relatively arbitrary cut-off.
