Petition starts to connect Gatineau to community trail

Chelsea mayor: no connection to Gatineau

This week, Chelsea Mayor Caryl Green reiterated the municipal council’s pledge to not connect the community trail south to Gatineau.

The question came up because of a petition circling around social media that calls for a multi-purpose trail going north from Gatineau to La Pêche along the old steam train rail corridor.

The petition, titled “Finalize the Gatineau-Chelsea-Wakefield community multi-purpose trail by creating the Freeman-Chelsea green corridor,” was started in early-October, and by the evening of Nov. 9 had reached 2,937 signatures out of its goal of 5,000 signatures.
