For example: you might believe that the City should dedicate some more staffing towards educational programming (cycling safety, awareness, encouragement, etc) to benefit all the diverse age, multi-cultural populations in Vancouver, this may be the best time and place to give that feedback ! This education could be via community centres, schools, the VPD and/or other groups.
