Pedaling for Change
The Toronto Cyclists Union aims to be this city's first membership-driven cycling advocacy group, working towards creating a sustainable city by working within the community to affect positive change for Toronto's pedal-powered citizens.
The Union will be holding a free Cycling Advocacy Workshop at City Hall next Sunday (April 13) from 11 AM to 4 PM. The workshop will be geared towards helping Toronto residents improve cycling conditions in their neighbourhoods, and will also give tips on navigating local political networks effectively in order to be a force of positive change in this city.
Speakers will include Eleanor McMahon of the Share The Road Cycling Coalition, Fred Stzabinski of the Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation, Jake Alderdice from Dundas EAST, City Councillors Joe Mihevc and Gord Perks, Katrina Miller from the Toronto Environmental Alliance, Martin Koob of www.biketoronto.ca, Patrick Brown, Sean Meagher from Public Interest, Shamez Amlani from Streets are for People, Shannon Thompson from Greenest City, Tammy Thorne and Usman Valiante from the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada.
