Cyclists stage sit-in to protest removal of bike lanes

Activists have asked that the lanes remain until new bike lanes can be implemented on nearby Sherbourne Street.

Wayne Scott, from the Save Jarvis group, and Chris Drew, with the Church-Wellesley neighbourhood association, said they were concerned that taxpayers’ money was being wasted to remove the lanes.

“This piece of paint may not look like much, but it has improved safety for drivers, residents and cyclists,” Drew said.
