Toronto's Weekly Carnage (Nov. 10th)

The Mission Statement
This city is backwards. It is not following the transportation policies of great cities - world class cities like London, Paris, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Tokyo, New York, and San Francisco, just to name a few. These are cities who realize that a great, efficient public transit network as well as encouraging cycling and walking makes a city great and livable and world-renowned.
Cycling Soldiers
Nothing is more exhilarating, efficient and enjoyable than getting on a bicycle zipping through the crowded streets of New York City, provided the rider does not mind assuming the role of transit pioneer and cycling soldier… there is a daily battle taking place on the streets of New York City between automobiles and bicycles.

Today's Bike & Car-Free News (Nov. 9th)
Vaughan returns to the oft-raised issue of the lane widths on the re-constructed St. Clair, and asks — quite reasonably — why they need to be as broad as they are. Looking at the sections yet to be built, Vaughan believes it would be possible to narrow the vehicle lanes in order to buy extra space for bike lanes and sidewalks, even while leaving the segregated ROW in place.
