CHMA takes a walk on the Trans Canada Trail with retired Sackville doctor Ross Thomas, to talk about his support for a move by Councillor Josh Goguen to see the trail come under the town’s management.

Thomas is part of a group of citizens also advocating for town cooperation in pursuing funding for a pedway to connect the trail across the Trans Canada highway.  He says the trail surface has been damaged by increasing ATV use in recent years, due to lack of replacement of signs and gates meant to keep drivers off the non-motorized trail. Thomas says the trail is a 'rural sidewalk' and provides opportunity for exercise and green transportation in Tantramar.

Goguen's motion is expected at Tantramar council's next meeting on December 12, 2023.
