Thanks @rangamel for the more accurate info, that is such a shame. @doyoueventribro , do you have a conservancy group in Canada like railstotrails.org in the US? Perhaps you can contact them to see if there is a counterpart that could get involved.There are amazing rails to trails on the western side of cape breton from the old coal rail but for whatever reason in industrial cape breton (the eastern side) they're still clinging to the idea that a rail system is still required for the economy even though it's been out of commission for over 6 years now. They tried to get a multi-use path on one section which would take cyclists off of a 4-lane arterial road but the local councilor insisted the better option would be a sidewalk on both sides of the road and dismissed the input of the local cycling group.
Actually, knowing your level of involvement, I'm sure you've already exhausted these options, so Sworry in advance if you have. Your note caused me to look at the page, which caused me to see a survey. So Thanks!
