Ford said Monday that pulling the bike lanes out was what people want.
“Unfortunately, I wasn’t the one who voted to put them in, in the first place,” Ford said.
During the 2010 election campaign, Ford said he heard from residents who use that road.
“They want to get home to their families quicker and that’s what I’ve done, I’ve listened to the taxpayers and done what they wanted me to do,” he said.
