worked hard for the last 21 years with the Seaway Commission and the
Niagara Region to develop the East Side Canal Trail. This trail is a
vital segment of the larger Greater Niagara Circle Route Trail. Without
this link, and City of Welland Support the entire 160km loop is at risk
of closure. Thorold, Port Robinson, Port Colborne, Niagara on the Lake,
Niagara Falls, Stephensville, Fort Erie, St. Catharines are at risk of
having over $10.6million of federal, provincial and private sector money
invested in developing and maintaining this tourism and local community
trail; being wasted!
Mayor Barry Sharpe, City of Welland
On June 1, please vote to Renew the City of Welland Lease on the Welland portion of the East Side Canal Trail.
I use this trail for walking, dirtbiking, and
mountain biking. it has been an important part of my life, and i would
love for it to remain.

It is time city councils everywhere started to have
the courage to stand up to a problem caused by few. It seems anytime
even one person complains about anything, councils jump all over it not
looking at the bigger picture.
This is a bigger picture. this are serves as a safe haven for motor
cycles, horses, bicyclists, walkers, and hikers. As you should be aware,
you are potentially opting out of a 160km circuit, and a lot of
invested money. Please stand up and vote to keep this section accessable
This is important to me because of the dwindling
area to safely ride dirt bikes in the Niagara region. There needs to be a
safe, LEGAL place to participate in this type of activity and this area
