Condo developers contribute $1 million to Bixi Toronto

Too many politicians talk a good game, but how many actually follow through? Kristyn Wong-Tam FOR THE WIN.

If, one day, the Bixi bicycle-sharing program finally arrives in neighbourhoods outside the downtown core, it may come courtesy of a downtown councillor and downtown developers.

The city now has 80 Bixi stations; the $1 million could pay for about 20 more.
