    Cycling infrastructure (Separate bike lanes headed downtown)

    Since Doug Ford is so emphatic about having the light rail grade separated from automobile traffic, wonder if that includes bicyclists. There seems to be nothing from the province level about cycling infrastructure. The city may have to go on its own in building superhighways for bicyclists...
