Twenty-eight Skeena Middle School (SMS) students dismounted their bikes in front of Terrace City Hall on Friday and filed into council chambers, bike helmets in hand, with an important presentation for council.
“I feel like when I’m biking it’s unsafe in a lot of parts of Terrace,” says Garin Bahr, Grade 9. “When I’m coming down Lanfear Hill to my house, there have been a couple of times when I was almost run over by cars.”
The students told council they want changes made to the city’s bike lanes. The Grade 9 class has been doing research on the subject for the last month.
