Hey @NACTO #NACTO19. Before you fawn over Toronto's leadership, we have seen MANY pedestrians preventably killed in recent weeks. This woman, killed yesterday, might have been someone's mom.…
This one, Friday, someone's grandpa?…
Imagine sitting for days by the side of a dangerous arterial, holding a sign hoping for the hit-and-run driver who killed your vibrant, beloved daughter to come forward? Knowing there is still no crosswalk planned to address the TTC desire line? #NACTO19…
#RoadViolence is so rampant and destructive that many have called for a state of emergency.…

It's been 4 years today nearly to the minute since the driver of a 300HP 4,600lb SUV made a negligent left turn and slammed her oversized, overpowered vehicle into my body while I was riding my bike to work. I have been living with the fallout ever since. #BikeTO Image
She inflicted a broken spine, brain injury, severe soft tissue damage to my left side. I developed a deep vein thrombosis in my left leg, and later a big piece of that clot broke off, chewed through my heart, and landed across both lobes of my lungs. That's often fatal.
This driver's actions nearly killed me TWICE. She was fined $300 and received ZERO demerit points. Compare: if you cut down a tree without authorization in Toronto, you can be fined $100,000. She got to keep driving like she didn't nearly just kill someone. No justice for me.
