Top Comments on crosswalks and the emergency shelter

A handful of comments from our online readers

RE: Pedestrian struck at crosswalk

“That crosswalk is a death waiting to happen. I’ve been in that immediate area a lot recently and you just know someone’s gonna get hurt real bad or worse it is poorly lit and not marked well perhaps some amber flashing lights on the existing structure and more pedestrians should wear lighter coloured clothing or wear some reflective gear.”

Peter Helland

“They need to put in a four way stop sign there too many people been hit there.”

Kevin J Innes

“This crosswalk is horrible. And it’s not just at night either. When the sun sets in the winter, it shines right down 2nd Avenue and blinds all the drivers headed west. I almost saw a boy get hit there the other day because a driver was fully blinded. A pedestrian controlled crosswalk is a good solution.”

Jen Gordon

“The city needs to see blind spots for drivers, and the controlled lights sounds good, in that spot lots of people get hit there.

Re: City announces emergency shelter

“Awesome news. Everyone needs help at points in our lives and having an addiction shouldn’t prevent someone from a roof, food or clothing.”

Dawn Matthews

“This is what happens when people put aside there differences and work together for a common goal!”

RE: Terrace bus service launched

“Prince Rupert Council chose not to fund this, that’s why there is no service from/to here.”

Ida Middleton

“The city opted to go for what we believe is a more responsive approach to the Highway of Tears. We decided to go with a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week solution by partnering with the North Coast Transition Society to provide a ride day or night to ensure safe travel to anywhere at any time.”
