Bike Spotting at St. George and Hoskin: Is bike policy an important part of your vote for mayor?

We hit the streets on election day to find out how big a factor a candidate's bike policy was for voters.

Sophie

Yeah I will be voting for sure, (bike policy) actually matters a lot to me.

Anders 

I actually didn’t take notice of (the candidates) speech about bicycle policies, sorry.

Adam

Not a major role actually, I’m more interested in general transit issues and overall leadership ability.

No, I have not voted yet but I will be.

I will be voting for John Tory.

Chris

(Bike policy) is probably a smaller part of the bigger picture I’d say. Probably it’s really a balance of all the factors that are important to me: leadership, active transportation and the ability to build a consensus within council.

These days you have to be careful with what you wish for, I’ll say (I’m not voting for) Doug Ford.

Kasra

Well, I wouldn't have voted for Ford, because I don't like their "no bike" policy. And Olivia Chow and John Tory, both of them, I think, approve of bikes. So that's where it came to influencing my vote.

Firmo

I'm actually not a citizen, I can't vote, but I would vote for Olivia Chow, I think she's the best. If anyone has any kind of bike policy, she's the one.
