Mayoral candidate David Soknacki wants to remove roadblocks that delay building new bike lanes in the city.
Soknacki, the first prominent mayoral hopeful to roll out a bike plan, said environmental assessments take too long.
He vowed that if elected mayor Oct. 27, he will lobby the provincial government to okay faster assessments of bike lanes “where environmental benefits are obvious.”
Cycle Toronto, which has been advocating for speedier approvals, noted that the environmental assessment for bike lanes on Richmond and Adelaide Sts. will take up to four years.
