Erica Stark was walking the family foster dog when she was struck and killed by a speeding minivan in November 2014.
Now, her husband David Stark is campaigning to make streets safer — and he says that more needs to be done in his home city, Toronto."We're seeing incremental improvements, but they're not happening fast enough, and I think that there needs to be more money earmarked to prioritize road safety," Stark told Cross Country Checkup.
