CORNWALL Ontario – As the debate about the bike paths on Second Street continue a City Councilor had an accident on the corner of Marlborough and Second Street West.
Mark MacDonald missed council after the 4 PM incident where he stopped moving through the busy intersection when he heard approaching sirens.
He was rear ended and taken to CCH after suffering whip lash like symptoms. He has stated that the bike lines have to go.
Cornwall is also not stating how much extra has been added to the snow removal budget this winter for extra cleaning equipment and man hours for the bike lanes that have cut a four line East West artery of our city down to two.
He missed another contentious subject at council as over twenty Cornwall firefighters attended council as budget deliberations continue.
Firefighters are concerned about potential cuts while Mr. MacDonald stressed via phone this morning that he’s trying to save jobs and that it’s not an us or them situation.
We will be updating this story as more information becomes available.
