Coming up this Thursday is the community discussion on bike theft. The event is tied in with the KENK graphic novel that's made a splash over the news. Everyone likes to focus on a big personality like Igor who loved the attention, regardless of whether it was positive or negative. The truth is that bike theft still takes place and the guys who went around stealing bikes are still as active as ever.
The discussion will take place this Thursday, June 3, 2010, 8 - 10 pm at CineCycle (129 Spadina Ave - just south of Richmond and down the lane)
The confirmed panelists include:
- Richard Goddard, Moderator (CBC)
- Richard Poplak (Writer, KENK: A Graphic Portrait)
- Yvonne Bambrick (Toronto Cyclists Union)
- Eric Kamphof (Curbside Cycle)
- Herb van den Dool (IBikeTO.ca)
- Robert Tajti (14 Division Planner & Technical Coordinator, Toronto Police)
There is a suggested admission of $5* where proceeds will go to the bike union and Cinecycle.
