Lloyd Atler reports on Treehugger about the 1000+ cycling protest up Jarvis last night:

Last night, Toronto’s Bike Nation turned out to demand some room on the road. More than a thousand cyclists and supporters rode up Jarvis Street to Toronto City Hall, chanting “We just want to share.” As bike activist Dave Meslin said:

“There’s a word most of us learned in kindergarten. It’s called ‘sharing.” What we have behind us is called a complete street. Complete streets bring people together instead of dividing them. City Hall is trying to divide us and we’re not going to play that game.”

This is going to become increasingly militant if Ford wants to continue on this line. If this doesn’t work I’m going to suggest that this becomes a weekly ride.

What is even more shameful is that the Star did nothing nothing to cover the protest. Thumbs down local media guys.
