“Specifically here in Scarborough Southwest, will you support the City of Toronto’s plan to add 100 km of paved bike lanes with protected curbs?”

Yes – The 100 km plan was adopted by City Council in 2021, with an overwhelming majority of 20 to 2, and the implementation across the city is already almost complete.

Scarborough already has some examples of very high quality cycling infrastructure – we can do even better to make streets safer for everyone. Two examples great are on Ellesmere near Markham (next to Woburn Collegiate) and near Kingston Road near Glen Everest (next to Rosetta McClain Gardens).

There is a much broader conversation about making Scarborough’s streets safer for everyone, especially for pedestrians, and we need to consider all the tools in the safe streets toolkit – including safer pedestrian crossings at bus stops and schools, more speed cameras, speed bumps and other traffic calming measures.
