LEVY: Car Wars, the Empire strikes back!

LEVY: Car Wars, the Empire strikes back!

I’ve watched council go down this road many times before.

Sensing there’s more money to spend from a budget surplus — money that rightly should be used to pay down the city’s debt or top up reserves — the agenda-driven on council (mostly on the left end of the political spectrum) set about finding new ways to inflict their War on the Car/Vision Zero agenda on Torontonians this week.

Throw in the recent death of a cyclist at the busy corner where the Bloor St. bike lanes intersect with George St., a compliant mayor, and an upcoming election — and that’s all they needed to double the money they plan on spending, from $21.3 million this year and $43 million the next.
