If you are elected, what will be your top priorities?


Do you ride a bike?

Candidates were asked to choose any of the following options: No, I don’t ride; I mountain bike; I ride on roads; I would like to ride on roads, but I don’t because I am afraid to do so; I ride for recreation; I ride for commuting purposes; I ride every chance I get; I ride weekly; I ride monthly; I ride only in the spring, summer and fall; I ride year round.


In the next questions, candidates were asked to agree or disagree with the question:

I support projects that promote healthy active living in our community: ${healthy-living}
I consider cycling an increasingly important mode of transportation ${cycling-important-mode-of-transportation}
Investing in a bike-friendly community benefits everyone ${investing-in-bike-friendly}
Alternative modes of transportation are going to be more necessary in the future ${future-needs}
Our community’s cycling infrastructure needs to be improved ${needs-improvement}

Were you aware that the city’s 2010 Sustainable Mobility Plan states that 1/3 of our residents don’t drive a car? Cycling can be done by all Greater Sudbury residents, and is good for personal health and the health of the environment. What ideas or recommendations do you have to improve and encourage alternate modes of transportation, including cycling, in Greater Sudbury?


Would you support budget dollars dedicated to building new cycling infrastructure as identified in the Transportation Master Plan? For example, the current Transportation Study proposes building bike lanes on a number of existing roads.


Explain why/why not?


Would you support the mandatory inclusion of cycling infrastructure in all the arterial and major roads projects already identified on the 2014-2018 roads capital budget priority list?


Explain why/why not?


Would you support the implementation of a Complete Streets Policy, entrenched in the Official Plan, with the following components:

  • strong policy language like “must implement”;
  • addressing all users including pedestrians, cyclists and transit users of all ages and abilities;
  • applicable to all projects (new, retrofit and repair);
  • with a mandated procedure to allow exceptions;
  • with the aim to create a comprehensive, integrated, connected network to benefit all users and modes;
  • that will cover all jurisdictions;
  • that uses the latest and best design criteria and guidelines;
  • that allows for road and community context;
  • that establishes performance standards with measurable outcomes;
  • that includes specific next steps for implementation.

Explain why/why not?


Would you support implementing a Transportation Demand Management strategy and program at the City directed by a senior manager who will coordinate the implementation across all impacted City departments?

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) is a wide range of policies, programs, services and
products that influence how, when, where and why people and goods are moved. TDM programs and strategies are meant to encourage greater use of sustainable modes of transportation and trip decision making that reduces, combines or shortens vehicle trips. For a sample TDM strategy implementation, see: Kitchener Transportation Demand Management Program


Explain why/why not?


Cyclists want to be part of the road design process when cycling infrastructure is involved. How will you ensure that community consultation is done effectively and openly from the start to finish of all roads projects?
