Cyclists rally for Lansdowne bike lanes after 4 year delay


Great article by Spacing.  Horrible insight into city processes.  People complaining about the loss of a few car parking spaces delays City Council decisons.  Unbelievable.

As night descended on MacGregor Playground on Oct. 29, cyclists clad in ghoulish garb rallied in support of Lansdowne Ave. bike lanes that Toronto council approved in 2009 and 2010, but have yet to be installed.

“We wanted to organize tonight and come out and send a message to say that three and a half years, four years, is too long. We want to see action,” said Jared Kolb, executive director of Cycle Toronto, the advocacy group behind the rally, to a gathering crowd.

The approved lanes, if completed, would stretch along Lansdowne Ave. from Bloor St. W. to Davenport Rd. and from south of Dundas St. W. to Rideau Ave.
