Rather than only harping on missed opportunities when it comes to
advocating for more bike lanes in the City, it's also important to
celebrate newly installed bike lanes. Come join the City in celebrating
the completion of one of Toronto's newest bike lanes: Rogers Road (from Oakwood Avenue to Old Weston Road).
The City of Toronto is proposing to widen St. Clair Avenue West between Cobalt Avenue and Mondovi Gate. Widening roads is not good city building. Almost always motivated by concern over traffic, it does nothing to reduce traffic. In the long run, in fact, widening roads increases traffic.

If you live in the area, please consider attending the meeting to find out more and to ensure that your views are properly represented.
The City of Toronto is celebrating the culture of walking with “St. Clair Feet on the Street”.
Pedestrians will get to enjoy St. Clair Avenue West closed to cars, but not streetcars, in both directions between Vaughan Road and Winona Drive on Saturday, June 19th from 5-11pm and on Sunday, June 20th from 9am-8pm.
The event will feature sidewalk sales, displays and information tables from businesses along the street and restaurant/café patios operating on the sidewalks. The TTC heritage streetcar will offer FREE rides on Sunday.
