One added note to this discussion which others have mentioned here, other forums, twitter etc.... is the complete lack of usefulness of these new bike lanes by not doing the whole street.

My bike commute takes me from King/Locke to almost Gage Park. Currently I have to weave through downtown to the rail trail at Corktown Park. These new lanes would have been perfect for taking Canada to Hunter and Hunter to Ferguson which connects to the rail trail. Instead, I'll still have to do my weaving routine. They will lose a massive amount of potential riders simply by being too timid in front of the GO Station. It's like building the Linc only from Garth to Upper James, but with no exit/entry ramps.
People would think that's nuts, but it's exactly what we do with our bike 'network'.
