Syd­ney in­ter­sec­tion dan­ger­ous to cross

Cape Breton Post - - EDITORIAL -

Lo­cal res­i­dents who fre­quent daily the Cen­tre sco­laire Etoile de l’Acadie School have been com­plain­ing for sev­eral years to the CBRM about the to­tal in­se­cu­rity of the Inglis and Prince streets in­ter­sec­tion in Syd­ney.

Some en­quiries were done to no pos­i­tive re­sults yet. Our chil­dren and many adults, in­clud­ing the cus­tomers of the le­gion, are still afraid to cross at that very place and it gets worse in win­ter.

Are the mu­nic­i­pal au­thor­i­ties wait­ing for a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent to hap­pen be­fore find­ing a pos­i­tive and not ex­pen­sive so­lu­tion? The par­ents should be able to have some peace of mind in­stead of wor­ry­ing. Prom­ises are not enough. Im­me­di­ate pos­i­tive acts should be ac­com­plished as the whole nearby plaza is be­ing de­vel­oped with new stores. Gisèle Blanc Lavoie Syd­ney River
