I WISH city staff would just do what they want, because it's clear that they recognize that this park doesn't even comply with the Canadians with Disabilities Act in it's current state, and needs to be made more accessible for everyone.

However, Lawrence Stasiuk made it clear that if there is too much disagreement over certain park elements, they will do nothing and we will be left with the status quo, and the anti-accessibility people will get their way.

The only agency here that will get its way regardless of public sentiment is the RBG, which is only right as they own the land, and their mandate to preserve the forest must supercede all other interests. Tys (the RBG rep) made it pretty clear that the pathways will not harm the forest, and that in fact the perimeter pathway will help protect it.
