Here`s what I just posted on the Spec Hallmarks blog (stuck in moderation right now):

I dont see any mention of kids in this debate. The only reason my older kids can ride safely from our house to Kenilworth Library (the libraries are so far apart here, unlike our old west Toronto neighbourhood-- another topic, I know) is the paved path that begins behind the Dairy Queen at Ottawa and Main and takes them directly there. They dont ride anywhere else out of the neighbourhood much. It would be great if my teenage daughter could ride her bike out to her part-time job near Eastgate, for example, but theres no safe route. The HSR, given their weekend-holiday schedule, is a distant second-best. It doesnt seem to occur to council that a healthy city also makes it possible for growing children and teens to do interesting and productive things as independently as possible. Good cycling infrastructure would go a long way towards this.
