Awful story out of Toronto . . .

Well, I hate to make my first "two-wheel" post of the year a report on this story, but events beyond my control have made it the first newsworthy biking news of the year. It involves both bikes and the law, but not (as yet) technology.

Apparently Ontario's former Attorney General, Michael Bryant, has been charged with a variety of vehicular homicide charges for his alleged involvement in the death of a Toronto bike courier, Darcy Sheppard near one of Toronto's busiest intersections - Bloor and Bay. Sheppard had a baby boy who is now without a father.

This is a dreadful example of who loses when there is an altercation between a motorist and a cyclist.

To all of you out there on two wheels: be safe.
