Ghost bike left on Spadina for Carla Warrilow

Carla WarrilowI have no words.  I blame anyone against bikelanes, anywhere.  Anyone who doesn’t think people should be safe no matter what mode of transportation they use is an awful person.

The group had gathered at Spadina Ave. and Dundas St. W. to chain a white “ghost bike” to a lamppost as a memorial to 25-year-old Carla Warrilow, who became the third cyclist killed on Toronto’s streets this year.

Warrilow was struck and dragged beneath a truck on Oct. 16. It took paramedics 15 minutes to free her. She succumbed to her injuries in hospital last week.

Her mourners biked in a pack down Spadina and stopped to wrap lace around the lamppost at the spot where she was struck. They decorated the ghost bike with flowers and notes. Barely a metre away is a mark on the pavement where a bike lane used to be.
