Coronavirus: Halifax councillor calling for HRM trails to remain open

Halifax councillor Shawn Cleary is looking to make a change to the language of a municipal bylaw that is forcing all municipal trails to remain closed amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Very few people know what’s a provincial trail, what’s a municipal trial, for example, and there’s even some confusion amongst some folks at the city,” Cleary said.

The Nova Scotia government declared a provincewide state of emergency on Sunday. As a result, the province closed all provincial parks and beaches, but kept provincial trails open.

Premier Stephen McNeil said the declaration was made after large groups of people continued to gather in large numbers at beaches and parks without following proper social distance.
