"...we need to build a street that fosters pedestrian traffic. One of the biggest issues on Rideau Street is how very dangerous it is. Just last week, a pedestrian was hit by a truck at Rideau and King Edward. That intersection, along with Rideau and Cumberland, is one of the city’s most dangerous intersections for pedestrians and bicyclists. You can’t have a community engaged with the life of the street if the street tends to take the lives of the community."
