A man has been charged with careless driving after Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon got […]

dec14cp

A little bit of news in the story from yesterday, about a Canada Post worker parking his mail truck in a bikelane and then telling a cyclist to “go f-k yourself” when she documented it.

EglintonAtTheGoldenMile.img_assist_custom-525x295

Good news… Eglinton Connects (which has separated bikelanes) has been approved by Council.  The Ford schmoes again prove their idiocy by their statements about something hurting drivers (the only kind of Torontonian with rights in Ford’s Toronto).  I used to live at Eglinton and Mt. Pleasant and there was ALWAYS only one lane of moving cars […]
