A neighbourhood in North Vancouver, B.C. is angry that the city wants to build a wide sidewalk outside their homes.

They don't like it because a chunk of their gardens will be taken out, but the city says a sidewalk is necessary because there is a school across the street and the children need a safe place to walk. 

Watch Citizen Shane report on this sidewalk skirmish.
