Three of the five Winnipeg city councilors who oppose the 20-year cycling strategy said they have legal grounds to keep their fight going.
Earlier this month, council denied 20 amendments to the plan from being heard, before it passed the blueprint into law.
Now councillors Ross Eadie, Jason Schreyer and Russ Wyatt say they’ve paid up to $750 for a legal opinion that says that ruling was offside.
They say there is nothing in the bylaw that allows the speaker or the mayor to disallow the motions.
They want the document debated again at the next council meeting.
