Allocate 10\% of Gas Tax Revenues to Active and Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure sign now

We need to provide safe environments for people to bicycle and walk as a mode of transportation as well as provide options for public transit.

Currently:
Only 12\% of Nova Scotians report to living an active lifestyle (Canadian Census Data);
Inactivity leads to increased burden and increased costs for the health care system;
Communities with infrastructure for active transportation have lower obesity rates;
Canada has committed to reducing green house gases in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol and shifting transportation modes is an important part of this commitment;
Several Nova Scotian municipalities have struck Active Transportation (AT) committees; and others have developed or are in the process of developing bikeways plans;
Transport Canada is planning on allocating a percentage of infrastructure funds to active transportation;
Long term cost savings in road infrastructure would be realized if other modes of transportation were more heavily used.

Therefore we, the undersigned, request that the provincial government of Nova Scotia allocate 10\% of all gas tax revenues to active and sustainable transportation infrastructure. We would like to see this policy in place by the Fall of 2006.

This petition is being circulated by the Ecology Action Centre In Halifax Nova Scotia, and Velo Cape Breton Bicycle Club. Petitions will be presented to the Nova Scotia Legislature at its next seating.
