MtEvelyn Aqueduct - Council votes

Well, a significant event happened tonight at the council meeting. I spoke on behalf of YRMTB. I was happy to see great support, thanks everyone who turned up, I counted 18 members in the gallery, (3 of whom rode there). This issue has taken a lot of energy from many of us and I am sure we are moving forward as an advocacy group hopefully working toward a bigger picture.
