Jarvis St. bike lane removal met by protest

 

The crew was less than a block into the job when 33-year-old Steve Fisher plunked down cross-legged in the truck’s path just north of Wellesley St E.

“I know you’re doing your job, but I’m not going to move,” said Fisher, a freelance arts and culture writer who said he was twice hit by cars before the lanes were installed.

The workers pulled ahead to the south side of the intersection, hoping to start again — but policy researcher Michael Polanyi was waiting.

“I think there’s widespread concern that this is happening,” he said, sitting in front of the truck. “There was no public consultation. People need to stand up for safety.”
