Remembering Ryan Carriere

Two years ago, cyclist Ryan Carriere was hit by a truck turning from Queen Street West onto Gladstone Avenue. He was on his way home to go trick-or-treating with his kids.

Spacing has a post up today
remembering him and bringing attention to the efforts of J. Patrick Brown, a lawyer representing Ryan’s family, in getting politicians to make streets safer for cyclists:

Ryan was a loving and devoted husband and an amazing father to his two young children. He was also a valued member of his community. Ryan prided himself on protecting the environment and was a proactive silent advocate by cycling to and from work. Ryan was tragically killed on his bike at the intersection of Queen and Gladstone. The second anniversary of Ryan’s death is this Halloween.

In addition to this extremely tragic accident, I am seeing more and more alarming accidents caused to cyclist by motorists on the streets of Toronto, and in particular Queen Street. These accidents to cyclists will leave some with life long disabilities. As well, the present law in Ontario restricts and limits compensation to many of these individuals.

The need for a greener and safer Toronto is paramount. A number of citizen cyclists have become exasperated with non-action by the City and have advocated for a bike lane on Queen Street, only to have the City remove their efforts.
