THE BAD

Midtown Post - - News -

One Toronto so­cial me­dia hash­tag is a sad re­minder of what an aw­ful year it has been for the city’s vul­ner­a­ble road users. In light of the 100 res­i­dents who have lost their lives in the city sim­ply by walk­ing or cy­cling on our city streets, the hash­tag #NearMis­sToronto has be­gun chron­i­cling the cases of those who came close to be­ing killed. Mayor John Tory brought the Vi­sion Zero pro­gram to the city in 2016, with the goal of elim­i­nat­ing road fa­tal­i­ties by 2021, but the re­sults have shown move­ment in the wrong di­rec­tion.
