On Thursday April 30, City Council met for the first time since the COVID-19 emergency began. In Council’s first ever virtual meeting only the most essential business was on the agenda. Fortunately, we have made clear that cycling is an essential matter!
It’s been almost two months since we shut down non-essential businesses to reduce the burden on our healthcare system as a result of COVID-19. Over these weeks Cycle Toronto has been engaging with City of Toronto staff and councillors and our partners to advocate for rebalancing streets.
