CURRENT FOCUS:

We are advocating on behalf of residents to keep 4 lanes of traffic on Bloor Street. The City can add cycle lanes where they see fit. Of the ballots submitted at Meeting 4,

  84% supported keeping Alternative 5. It required a Freedom of Information Act to get that data. 


Despite multiple requests for data of any kind, they were ignored or denied, whether the request was from AHHRA or other residents. The traffic report was leaked to AHHRA.   Please see the Corporate and Traffic report for more information. 

THIS ELECTION IS OUR CHANCE TO STOP THE LANE REDUCTIONS AND KEEP 4 LANES and ADD BIKE LANES on Boulevard! 


CANDIDATES FOR MAYOR that will PAUSE the Bloor Street Lane Reductions and REASSESS. >  They support keeping 4 lanes and ADDING bike lanes on the boulevard.

By-Election

The By-election for a new Mayor in Mississauga gives residents a crucial and important opportunity to raise the Bloor Street issue with Candidates and demand that the reduction in lanes planned for Bloor St be reconsidered.

 

Candidate George Tavares is the first mayoral candidate for Mississauga who publicly stated he does NOT support removing 2 lanes of traffic for Bloor St. George Tavares supports keeping 4 lanes PLUS bike lanes! “From tackling congestion and speeding to promoting pedestrian-friendly streets, my vision is ambitious yet practical. I believe we can maintain the current car lanes while implementing protected bike lanes.” Watch George’s video for insights and support our cause by sharing!   https://tinyurl.com/es4t5yae
