Pedestrian safety shouldn't be jeopardized to improve traffic flow, Shawn Menard says

Not sure why there is even such a thing as a ‘beg button’; pedestrian safety should always be considered priority over traffic flow. This should change throughout the ward. It is increasingly important that this be adjusted on main street in Old Ottawa East as well. With the abundance of traffic and speeding cars, the population growth and development of a more pedestrian friendly neighbourhood, it is puzzling that this has not yet been implemented. This is particularly apparent at the Hazel Main crossing. Looking forward to your response!
