OVCATA thanks County Council and asks for more commitment. In March, a delegation from OVCATA made a presentation to Renfrew County Council asking for the County to support the Silver Chain Challenge, declare June Bike Month, and up its budget for active transportation.

“We're falling behind,” Ish Theilheimer, one of the group's directors, told councillors, according to the Pembroke Observer . “Other areas are putting a lot of money into active transportation. We've got to step it up to meet that competition.”

The delegation received friendly response, with Warden Jennifer Murphy and other councillors making it clear that they support the active transportation. Since then, the County's Health Committee has recommended that County participate in the Silver Chain Challenge.
