Traffic: Cyclists to converge on city hall to urge safety measures

By the Ottawa Citizen, July 31, 2019

It’s looking more and more like summer on ByTown’s byways, as the thoroughfares were looking fast and smooth Wednesday.

However, there will be delays around city hall starting at 8 a.m., as cyclists gather to pay respects to Simon Khouri, the 13-year-old Orléans boy killed in a crash last week.

The groups Bike Ottawa and Ecology Ottawa have organized a vigil to remember Simon and to also urge the city to improve bike safety, including the implementation of “Vision Zero,” a road safety program aimed at making routes safe for all users.
