Trails need maintenance, not upgrades
Before the city considers $1.5 million for trail upgrades (e.g. entrances and crossings), I propose the city consider an effective trail maintenance program — the simple stuff — pruning and cutting the brush and overgrowth, adding more aggregate where washouts have occurred and other such basic maintenance activities.

The assumption had been that people do not consume high-quality diets because they did not have adequate access to healthy foods.

Kitchener proved itself with Big Music Fest
The biggest stage in North America has now been dismantled. The tour buses have left town. McLennan Park has been cleaned up and returned to the community.
