The WBCA has pursued this issue with Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre and a meeting with the superintendent responsible for the Centre Jules Leger is anticipated in the near future. The Centre Jules Leger is a school for the deaf administered by the province and the fence enclosing the property is maintained for the safety of their students.

We are looking for a solution whereby the fence line would be moved to make the former pathway available for pedestrian access. This pathway would benefit not only the residents of Ferndale and Selby as a shortcut to the transitway, but also of Selby, Beechgrove and Lanark as a more pleasant walk to the NCC pathway by the River at the end of Ferndale.

Please encourage your neighbours to add their comments and we will forward all of them to our provincial representative Yasir Naqvi. There is strength in numbers and we hope to have this green pathway opened

Let’s create a short cut to the Transitway!

Residents of Selby and Ferndale want to leave their cars at home and walk directly to the Transitway and Superstore.

At the fall Annual General Meeting this request was made to our new MPP, Yasir Naqvi and he has agreed to meet with us to pursue how we can open the pathway at the east ends of Selby and Beechgrove. View map

An informal path once existed along the side yard of the Centre Jules Leger, but this was completely fenced in for the safety of the school population. The construction of an additional fence will be proposed to restore a public pathway between the two streets. Two overhead light standards already exist along the path but approximately 200 ft of fencing will be required.

Let us know what you think by adding a comment to this article or by sending a message to the WBCA.
