Ride for Jarvis

This week was a huge disappointment for cycling in Toronto. While we move forward with protected bike lanes, the Ford administration sent a strong signal that cars matter more than people on bikes.

Let's send a message back. 

Let's ride for Jarvis. 

Let's ride for Toronto.

This is a family friendly event where we plan to ride together on Jarvis Street and take lanes of traffic. Come one, come all!

Meet at 6:30 at Allan Gardens off of Jarvis Street

As the Green Party candidate for Toronto Centre, I strongly oppose the removal of the Jarvis St. bike lanes and believe we need to look at all street planning with a complete streets approach so all types of traffic; pedestrian, cyclists and vehicles can move about in a safe and timely manner. Please join us on Wednesday and show your support for complete streets in Toronto.
