The city’s independent consultant’s report stated that the minimum cost of opening this trail was $250,000 while a more realistic cost was $750,000. The report also recommended that the trail remain closed over safety concerns.

David Speed, in his statement to council stated that in order to secure funds for this project, work would have to be postponed on all other pathway improvement projects in the city. That means stop the seawall path along Ogden Point and the inner harbour.

This is a shocking waste of taxpayer’s dollars when governments at all levels are having to restrain spending.

There is more to this story than has been reported.
