Forgot the “journalists” at the tabloid papers that complain about anyone who isn’t in a car. Norris McDonald, an auto journalist in the Star is enlightened enough to realize that dedicated bikelanes (not just paint, and ESPECIALLY not sharrows) not only make things safer and more convenient for people on bikes, but people in cars too:
Toronto is doing well when it comes to bike lanes but they could do a lot more and they could do it way faster. We’re going to have some snow before long and then most of the cyclists will disappear for a month or six weeks.
But then the sun will come out and the snow will melt and the bike riders will be back on the roads again — in force. There’s no reason for cyclists to die, or be doored, or for motorists to die a thousand deaths every time they have to leave a metre of space when the answer to all of this is staring us right in the face.
