Snow in the Bike Lane

On Feb. 1, snow began to fall in earnest in Toronto.
After recent promises made by AA Heaps to treat bike lanes as thoroughfares I set out to document the state of several bike lanes in Toronto daily.

You can see photos on my Flickr page here.
This corner, College and Spadina has not been properly cleared
ever since. And then there is the perpetual parking in the bike
lane issue.

Heaps promised again to get the job done on CBC radio on Feb 7th

Will keep taking photos especially at College and Spadina until
the job gets done ... tino
