Council is switching gears on its active transportation strategy that included the paving of neighbourhood trails after a group of residents voiced their opposition.

"I think I can say safely on behalf of all councillors the paving of Silver Birch Trail won't happen," said Mayor Cal Patterson at a council meeting on Oct. 13.

Council chambers was full that night with the same people who attended a public meeting on Oct. 8, the same people who signed a petition that sparked the about-face.
