Worried about climate change?
Concerned that there’s not much any single individual can do?
One of the most effective things anyone can do is simply drive less. No-one is saying that people have to give up their cars and never drive again, but simply drive LESS.
One of the results of Ottawa’s deteriorating public transit system is that people are choosing to drive more.
I’m not here to shame anyone into driving less when the alternatives to driving are so poor. I’m here to advocate that Ottawa take a leadership role in building a city with a strong transit and cycling network so that people who want to drive less can do it without feeling like martyrs to a cause.
Want to do something positive?
Advocate for better transit.
Advocate for better cycling networks.
It IS possible.
