Toronto is waking up this morning with an “Oh My Gawd, what have we done?” look on it’s face.
More people voted for noted anti-cyclist mayoral candidate Rob Ford than any other (but not the rest of them combined, it should be noted) yesterday, meaning that on Dec. 1st, he’ll become mayor.
Now that the campaign is over, it’ll be interesting how Toronto and the cycling community deal with the next 4 years.
Will the organized and political parts of the cycling community realize that, just like Ford has to build bridges with City Councillors, they have to build bridges with a Ford-run City Hall?
Or will they just devolve into the anarchistic behaviour of the more extreme factions of the cycling community?
What do you think is the best path?
