Common Council pushes for Ellen’s Law

Common Council is backing efforts to get Ellen’s Law passed in the province, according to CBC.

Councillors voted unanimously last night to a motion calling on the provincial government to institute a law calling for a minimum distance for motorists to keep away when passing cyclists. This comes after the death of Ellen Watters outside Sussex last month.

Mayor Don Darling said the mayors of Moncton and Fredericton are also pledging support.
