Last week, Mayor Jim Watson addressed a letter to Ontario's Minister of Education, MPP Mitzie Hunter, requesting provincial support to improve education for safe cycling.
As noted in the letter, this request is a result of one recommendation made by a group of cycling advocates, including CfSC, invited by the Chair of Ottawa's Transportation Committee and the Mayor to provide advice on how to make riding a bike safer in our city. CfSC has been participating in this group since it was convened in September 2016, following the tragic death of one of our city's cyclists in a collision with a construction truck.
