Free hospital parking?

Editor, The News:

Re: Million dollar bike path to nowhere (The News, Nov. 1).

Sandy MacDougall’s article encouraged me to do my own observation.

I travel that section of the Lougheed four times a day between the hours of nine and six.

Only once have I seen a person on a bike in the new lane. He was pulling an over-loaded grocery cart, and not wearing a helmet or reflective clothing.

It’s commendable to see our officials protecting cyclists, but as a tax-paying senior on a  fixed income, I think the million dollars could have been spent to benefit all members of our community -– for example, 10 years of free parking at our hospital.
