Approximately 20 people gathered at Circle K on the corner of Grandin Avenue and 100 Avenue to support organizer Marcy Nolin’s call for action on safety at the intersection and elsewhere in Town.

Recent collisions on 100 Avenue as well as long-standing safety concerns elsewhere in the community led Nolin to contact Edmonton’s Global News to help raise awareness of a problem that has been a concern to residents for years.

Nolin was interviewed for the segment along with Morinville Mayor Simon Boersma and Greater St. Albert Catholic Superintendent Dr. Clint Moroziuk.

The topic of pedestrian safety was discussed at Tuesday night’s Council meeting, and the Mayor also released a statement to media as well as on social media.
