The City of Toronto is about to axe its Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee. An explanation as to why this would be a bad thing is provided by member Tammy Thorne on the site.

If the committee were no longer to exist, it would make my goal of pushing for more and better year-round maintenance of all our off-road trails much more difficult. (I’ve got my sights set on the Don Valley trail network now – and the crosshairs aimed directly at the Mayor’s office.) Indeed, many of our “victories” were the result of hard work done by other research and advocacy groups (like TCAT) beforehand.
