I know Meghan. She would not make this up.

A Toronto cyclist alleges she was almost hit by Police Chief Bill Blair’s SUV after it swerved into a bike lane.

Meghan Orlinski was biking to class at Ryerson University Wednesday around 12 p.m. When she crossed the intersection at University Avenue and College Street and noticed a large black SUV encroaching on the bike lane.

Orlinski says she was twice forced to swerve when the large vehicle veered into the bike lane.
