Early in BC’s Phase Two, things don’t seem all that different.
Once-busy downtown intersections still have few vehicles or pedestrians.
Tourists (plus the Coho and the Clipper) have not returned.
People and their pooches are still out for mid-morning strolls.
Back alleys are still great places to be able to maintain two metres between pedestrians.
Construction never stopped. The Dallas Road pathway may soon be open.
And wildlife is still enjoying the peace and quiet.
But things are gradually “opening up” – though walkways, farmers’ markets and patio spaces all have a different look and feel this year. Pedestrians, like everyone else in BC, are still being asked to “be kind, be calm and stay safe.”
