Ontario Gov’t likes, but stalls on 1 metre rule

Toronto cycling activists were disappointed Tuesday when the city’s executive committee decided to wait for the province before weighing in on a new rule that would require motorists to leave a metre of space between their car and a bike when passing.

A day later, there was better news but no commitment from Ontario Transportation Minister Glen Murray.
