Ah, I kind of pity Rob Ford. He’s way out in Etobicoke-land… his braincells always under assault by carcinogen-laced car and truck exhaust…
“I can’t support bike lanes. Roads are built for buses, cars, and trucks. My heart bleeds when someone gets killed, but it’s their own fault at the end of the day.”
-Rob Ford, Toronto City Councilor
I’d like to invite Rob to check out archive of Toronto’s Weekly Carnage – it’s not just cyclists in there… most of it is other people in cars dying, and pedestrians dying. Using your logic it’s their fault they were killed because they were in a car, or going for a walk.
And for the record, roads have been around for FAR longer than cars have been. Thousands of years longer… the Roman Empire had a fantastic road system, and not one car! Not even a moped!
Even here in Toronto, roads pre-date cars.
