Love and sympathy for Toronto

Toronto, we both know you’ve never been the best looking city, but one of the biggest parts of looking good is accentuating your best features. One of the best things about you was your friendliness towards bikes. You have beautiful dedicated bike lanes along many of your major streets. You have city-subsidized programs to teach both kids and adults how to bike. Hell, you even decided to copy us over here and might launch your own BIXI program in May 2011.
But here you are, toying around with Rob Ford. He called cyclists a “pain in the ass,” and said he cannot support bike lanes. Come on, Toronto. You can do better!
Who's gonna win? Bike culture or politics?
