#CycleON: Is Ontario’s cycling strategy all talk?

It’s a good vision… but without money and commitment, it’s only a vision.  Let’s make it a reality, please?

It would be easy to dismiss Ontario’s new cycling strategy with a cynical, “So, what?” This province and its capital, Toronto, are, well, streets behind other jurisdictions in promoting cycling. Just putting out a policy document will not make it catch up.

The strategy, cutely named #CycleON and announced by the Ministry of Transportation on Aug. 30, is full of gauzy rhetoric and capital letters. “At the heart of the Strategy are a bold Vision, ambitious Goals and a set of carefully targeted Strategic Directions,” it pronounces.

Full story:  A start for Ontario’s cycling strategy that is streets behind – The Globe and Mail.
