In trying to understand how we feel about the tragedy that took one man's life on Bloor street and in trying and understand what we can do to make our streets safer, cyclists in Toronto have been inundated with detached articles written by people unconnected to our experiences.
Recently, Dave Meslin, a cycling advocate amongst many other things, wrote a blog entry entitled Death and Advocacy.
Sgt. Tim Burrows of the Toronto Police not only commented on this story, but also posted it to the Toronto Police blog. Yvonne Bambrick of the Toronto Cyclists Union has also commented on this article.
And now there is a rebuttal from TorontoCranks.com
Please, take the time to read both of these articles. While you may not feel strongly towards either opinion, becoming a part of the ongoing dialogue that has gripped the Toronto cycling community may help to bring us all together on our streets.
