Toronto’s crack-addled Mayor Rob Ford, opposing bike lanes in 2007: “My heart bleeds for ‘em when I hear someone gets killed—but it’s their own fault at the end of the day.”

"Roads are built for cars and trucks… Not people on bikes"

This narrow minded thinking, particularly when in a position of power or influence, truly is sickening.

Ford did get one aspect right though……..roads WERE built for cars and truck, not bikes, but isn’t that the point of adding bike lanes? Increase awareness? Safety?
