Help start a new walking advocacy group for Toronto

Does Toronto need a citizen’s advocacy group for walking? An ever-increasing number of people walk in Toronto, for commuting or for pleasure — it is now the most common way to get to work in some parts of downtown. Meanwhile, studies are showing that in parts of the suburbs, obesity and diabetes are more prevalent where the city is the least friendly towards walking. But there is no independent association of citizens dedicated to improving the city’s walking environment.

Wednesday, February 13, 2013
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Metro Hall, 55 John Street (South-east corner of King and John)
Room 308/309
See the website for more details.

NEWS: A Complete List of Bloor Bike Lane Articles

After 4 decades (!) of Toronto considering the possibility of bike lanes on Bloor, Toronto City Council overwhelmingly voted (38-3) in favour of a 1 year pilot to collect data and evaluate a 2 km stretch of Bloor with bikelanes.
