You are probably already aware of the tragic death of a cyclist in Toronto yesterday. It’s terrible, tragic, and all around sad news. Those things go without saying (highlighted here so you don’t think I’m an unfeeling robot).
I waited until today to put up a comment because I really want to see how the coverage would evolve. I grew more and more angry with this piece by CBC as they updated it throughout the day yesterday.
After Mr. Meslin’s fine quote on the situation, the TPS constable is given the floor. Most egregious fear mongering he does is speculate that the cyclist was trying to pass when there was no room, and that the bike trailer contributed to the accident.
I was really shocked to read about the lack of passenger side convex mirror on the 5-tonne truck from other news sources, but no mention on the CBC.
