Disappointed

You would think on a day like yesterday, with cars parked in every southbound lane of the city, it would have been so painfully obvious how important cyclists are and that cyclists actually are people who need to get to work. It was just good fortune that the TTC strike came on the one day of the year that the city makes a big effort to get hundred more people to cycle. This is why I was surprised to read a statement like the one below from Royson James in the Star this morning:

"As Toronto police escorted Mayor David Miller and cyclists celebrating Bike Week along Yonge St. yesterday, further snarling traffic swollen by the transit strike, the conditions were there for political disaster."

Further snarling? Would it have been better if all those people parked their cars on Yonge Street too? It sounds like something I would hear on our local AM radio station 1010.

Too bad. I usually like reading what Mr. James has to say.

I think Royson has a beef with Miller for something unspecified. I've yet to see a column from him praising Dave.
How about if every cyclist was in a car? That would have made it MUCH better, huh?

Nice blog, BTW :)
