Are trees more important than the safety of our kids?

I see nothing has been done about the intersection at 86 Avenue and 116 Street. It is still a potentially deadly pedestrian crossing.

On Oct. 22, 2015, I sent a letter to Delta Mayor Lois Jackson regarding my daughter and her friends’ accident at the intersection of 86 Avenue and 116 Street, reminding her the girls were hit while walking across a lit crosswalk on  116 Street and thrown 13 metres (42 feet).

I voiced my strong concerns regarding the dire need for a pedestrian-activated light at 86 Avenue and 116 Street.

Since the accident I have noticed a large number of trees have been planted along Nordel Way. Why are trees more important than the safety of our children? I see nothing has been done about the intersection at 86 Avenue and 116 Street. It is still a potentially deadly pedestrian crossing.

Is Delta waiting for something worse to happen? Was the promise of improvements nothing more than lip service to shut us up?

The residents of North Delta want action, not empty talk.
