Re: Bus path to U of M cleared (June 26). Winnipeg has been caught in a debate about serious rapid-transit implementation since the 1970s. This may explain why some members of city council sound like a broken record on the subject, in repeating the sentiment that car-oriented transportation strategies are still the best course of action for the city.

This city no longer exists in a bubble of the 1950s -- the time for action is now.

Kudos to the members of city council who have showed long-term vision and leadership on this issue and have worked to move this vital project forward. Despite years of haphazard progress, it is crucial for the future social and environmental health of this city to finally move forward.
