Capital Voices: ‘I absolutely hate cycling on the road’
Ottawa Citizen

By Bruce Deachman, Ottawa Citizen, February 24, 2017

In anticipation of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations, the Citizen’s Bruce Deachman has been out in search of Ottawans — 150 of them — to learn their stories of life and death, hope and love, obsession and fear. From Feb. 2 until Canada Day, we’ll share one person’s story every day.

“I love cycling, but I’m really concerned now. In the past two days there were two cycling accidents, and I don’t know if something can be done about it, about the whole infrastructure of Ottawa, so it’s not only safer for cyclists, but also, you know, build a tunnel and get rid of the trucks. This is the only capital in the world that has trucks going through the downtown core.
