Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam doesn’t want the legacy of Toronto’s Pan Am Games, America’s biggest celebration of sport and athletics, to be just bricks and mortar.

Wong-Tam envisions Toronto’s ciclovia to be a regular weekend event too, probably in the morning, connecting neighbourhoods through a series of clearly marked routes. The cost, she says, of running the event will likely be covered by a mix of city and corporate dollars.
