A councillor opposed to the city’s proposed cycling strategy should look at his own backyard to see the benefits of active transportation.

North Kildonan Coun. Jeff Browaty, one of the leaders of a revolt against the $334-million, 20-year strategy, has placed his home on the market.

One of its selling points, according to its real estate listing, is its proximity to an active transportation path:

“Convenient location with a nice sized park and the active transportation path close by,” reads a portion of the listing.

Browaty has noted myriad reasons for delaying the adoption of the strategy, which outlines the city’s 20-year plan for cycling and walking routes in the city, including the cost, errors in the 364-page document and absence of plans for needed sidewalks in his ward.

On Wednesday, Browaty along with four other councillors, took out a radio ad decrying the cost of the proposed strategy and implored Winnipeggers to tell Mayor Brian Bowman and their local councillor the strategy lacks common sense.

Council will vote on the strategy on Wednesday.
