A reporter talks to some of today’s youngest deputants during a break.
Wayne Scott asks why we’re still just talking about Bike Lanes on Bloor after 40 years. He remembers arguing with some previous members of PWIC who were the parents of some of the current members.
There was overwhelming support from the public, and all six local residents’ associations in the study area. The Bloor Annex BIA was also on board with doing the pilot so that appropriate data about the economic impact of bike lanes on Bloor could be measured. In spite of all this, the fact that there was a bare quorum meant that the future of the pilot depended on the opinions of four councillors.
Nevertheless, since the matter now passes to council, we must regard a tie vote as a win.
