How should the city react to civil disobedience in defence of the Jarvis Street bike lanes?

Interesting piece on possible civil disobedience regarding the Jarvis bikelane removal.  Following bike stuff, it’s easy to get ensconced in a “bike bubble” and the different viewpoints here help see the issue from different points of view:

When city crews finally begin erasing the bike lanes and restoring the reversible centre lane on Monday, they may find themselves met with resistance. That is, not just displeasure and protest but apparently physical obstruction: A group calling itself the Jarvis Taskforce is playfully but strongly hinting that they will be engaging in some form of “civil disobedience” that day. For a good while now, activist, public speaker and friend of mine Dave Meslin (who looks to be one of the group’s organizers) has been half-seriously promising that he would lie down in the street on the day the City comes to paint over the lanes. I’m not sure if that’s an element of the current plan, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it were.
