Kitchissippi councillor takes bike lane snow-clearing into his own hands

By Cassie Aylward, CFRA, January 20, 2018

An Ottawa city councillor took snow-clearing in a bike lane into his own hands Friday night, and says he wants to set an example for the City.

Kitchissippi Councillor Jeff Leiper personally shoveled the Armstrong Street and Wellington Street contra-flow bike lane and says it's not part of the city's winter maintained network.

"Every year they don't plow it and every year it fills in with snow that gets plowed into it," he tells CFRA's The Newsfeed. "The entrances to the lane get blocked by big piles of snow."
