The Worst Form of Governance

07 Nov 2011

Christopher Bird, for Torontoist:

People use fences and street signs because there simply aren’t bike posts to satisfy the demand for locking points. A law that penalizes people for not using bike posts will not solve this problem.

But it’s more than the law itself. It’s the fact that, when presented with the problem of there simply not being enough bike posts to handle bike traffic, Team Ford’s solution was to propose laws which can only serve to discourage cycling.

How does that saying go? Toronto is the worst city in Canada except all those other cities.
