A cyclist was killed in downtown Ottawa on a suggested cycling route. My heart goes out to the family. May I suggest removing parking on that street and adding a bike lane? Especially given that parking is permitted during rush hour on that street! Looks like the City of Ottawa has a lot of explaining to do and is liable for the death. A few years ago the same happened to Ron Freeman on College street at Grace. Nothing was ever done to fix the problematic intersection which often has cars parking illegally in front of a bank. Update: the driver was given a $110 fine and two demerit points.  Keep on driving!
