Today, the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) releases its 9th video from the It’s Your Move series, featuring Pam Damoff, Town Councillor for Ward 2 in Oakville.
Pam is a political champion for cycling and walking in the region of Halton. The recipient of the 2013 Bicycling Leadership Award from the Share the Road Cycling Coalition for promoting bicycling in Ontario, she is extremely proud of Oakville's 2012 Bronze Bicycle Friendly Community Award. As the founder of Cycle Oakville, she has implemented a number of community initiatives to encourage residents to cycle more often.
Oakville’s approved Active Transportation Master Plan guides future developments to their network of cycling routes, on-road cycle lanes, paved shoulder bikeways, signed bike routes and multi-use trails. Dedicated investments for active transportation infrastructure in Halton would support growth in this network, making active transportation more convenient, accessible and safe for Oakville residents.
The Big Move, Metrolinx’s 25-year regional transportation plan to dramatically improve transportation in the GTHA, includes 25% for local transportation initiatives. It’s Your Move is a strategic partnership with Metrolinx designed to promote the importance of allocating a dedicated portion of this 25% for walking and cycling projects. Each video in the 12-part series features a leader living in Halton, York, Peel, Durham, Hamilton or Toronto and shares personal and professional stories about the benefits of active transportation.
