Over 250-local residents have signed a petition against a new bus stop on Lebreche Drive. The road has no sidewalks, and families are concerned that a bus would be a huge safety risk for children and walkers.
According to the North Bay Nugget, Mayor Al McDonald met with about 50 residents on the street yesterday to address their concerns. He promised to organize a special meeting of council next week.
The new bus route is set to start running on May 31st. Some residents have said they will physically block the street if the bus tries to come down the road.
