Toronto: ‘travel by car is a necessity for most’

Rocco Rossi brought a brush and can of paint to Jarvis Street to show what he'd do to its new bike lanes if he becomes mayor.

"They will be painted over," Rossi said Thursday, July 15, near the corner of Wellesley Street for a campaign stop denouncing the lanes, to be applied the next day, as "sheer madness"

"The vast majority of Torontonians think the way I do on this issue," the candidate declared, adding because of the "woefully backward" state of Toronto's public transit,
travel by car is a necessity for most.
