@Hitecsoftouch @conradnobert Let me take a look again. The yellow barriers are all for pedestrian safety - to reduce the amount of time pedestrians are exposed.

@Hitecsoftouch Hmm, good point. But I think the point is to make drivers slow down and check for people more in these high-pedestrian areas.

@bubbatruk88 Tell me more. What about is confusing? It's a pilot project, right, so what should they change when they make the permanent version?

What was your first job as a journalist?

Summer staff (reporter, sometimes editor, flyer collater and sales clerk) at the Shaunavon Standard in small-town Saskatchewan.

How is social media changing news?

Social media allows me to have an ongoing discussion with people who live knee-deep in the many issues I cover everyday.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

A quick email is great, or mention something when we met at an event and we can follow up later.
