This message was sent by Citizens for Safe Cycling to Keith Egli, Chair of Transportation Committee for the City of Ottawa.

Dear Councillor Egli:

Ottawa has had several snowfalls since late December, and Citizens for Safe Cycling's Advocacy Working Group has been canvassing user opinions on the state of maintenance on the expanded winter cycling network that is being supported this winter.
