I 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.
Wed, Feb 24: Come to the Toronto Bike Awards!
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.
