Walking in North America - Celia Wade-Brown

Talking, walking, seeing fall colours and catching up with friends and family - what's not to like about a visit to North America in September?
 

We started with the grand official opening of the Banff Commonwealth Walkway. It physically links several paths around this Rocky Mountain City. Virtually there is a link to other Commonwealth countries including our own capital where the markers were finished last year. I was moved by the indigenous welcome from Siksika Nation elder Tom Crane Bear.

Why can’t we walk?

More walking needed for the Government Policy Statement on Transport

Living Streets Aotearoa submission on the Government Policy Statement on Transport asks for some significant changes to the Policy that determines the funding for the New Zealand land transport system. The proposed GPS continues years of non-funding for walking and pedestrian activity with a heavy bias towards state highway funding. Our submission recommends the focus for the New Zealand transport system must be people-centred to support a healthy life and sustainable activity for all.
