"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Trail Event

Next Sunday, special events are being organised along the Nokiida Trail System.

Newmarket and East Gwillimbury and Aurora are doing it together.

The gathering spot is  at the parking lot in Sheppard's Bush and the wood lots are part of the adventure.

The trail goes all the way now to the Mount Albert Sideroad. We had a formal opening on a week-day. It attracted mostly officials.

This event is  for the community and a celebration of  completion of a work in long time progress.

The trail  is intended eventually to reach Lake Simcoe. Things worth having are worth waiting for.

Ernie Crossland ,a citizen of King, then Newmarket is the man who must receive the credit.

Public rights of way are thousands of years old in Europe but  relatively new in Canada . It's a new freedom. A new way of enjoying the beauty of  unspoiled  nature.

It's an all-day event.  A journey of discovery.
