While new bike lanes are being installed in cities as diverse as Ottawa, Vanvoucer, New York and even Oakville and Burlington… Toronto is ripping them out. It’s embarrassing, and it’s frightening – because it shows that politicians are prepared to put ideology before safety, and make policy based on soundbites – not evidence. They are even prepared to put lives at risk, for short term political gain.
Now, more than ever, we need the Toronto Cyclists Union. For $2.50 per month, you can support Toronto’s only member-driven road safety organisation. If you want safe streets for your friends and family, support the bike union. We can turn this city around. And while we’ve lost Pharmacy – we can still save Jarvis Street. Thousands of cyclists are depending on it.
It’s my birthday. Help me celebrate by joining the bike union today.
It’s not unreasonable to ask for safe streets. Let’s make it happen.
