People vote with feet on Car Free Day
It to me looked like tens of thousands of Car-Free Vancouver Day celebrants out on Vancouver streets today, and I only made it to the West End and Main Street events before heading back to False Creek for a Vision neighbourhood pub gathering that drew more than 60 voters.
Early reports indicate the Commercial Drive event was the biggest ever, this on the heels of a major World Naked Bike Ride event Saturday and a very large Critical Mass a week or so earlier. It feels like momentum.
Watch all summer for the City’s Summer Spaces program — driven by Andrea Reimer — to add more such events city-wide.
