2020 Bike Ride 26

Saturday morning ride on the paths of Parc Jean-Drapeau. Most of these paths have been inside the fence of whatever event was happening at the time of my previous rides. It was nice to be able to see more of the island.

Total trip distance: 15.27 km

Moving time: 0h 53m

Zoomed in image. I even went to the southern tip of the island where there is a compass rose and some benches.

2020 Ride 25

Zoomed in image. I found a new route under the 15 on rue Angers, which I think was closed on earlier rides or it never occurred to me that there was another access point.

WE Charity: la firme National aurait géré le programme de bourses au Québec La Presse

^ So WE was the only organization with the capacity across the country to deliver this poorly thought out program except also they couldn’t deliver it in French so had to sub that out. Having to sub out part of the work isn’t the issue, it is the crumbling idea that WE were best placed everywhere.
