Toronto cyclist relies on hand signals as key safety measure

Meredith Johnson is cycling with a friend down Midland Avenue. They both stop to make a right turn, and in unison they lift their left arms out and up to signal before they make the turn.

“I first learned about signalling from a childhood friend’s parents who used to bring me along on their family bike rides,” she said.

Johnson, 26, is a Torontonian who cycles everywhere. She commutes via bike year round, so she’s quite used to signalling.

Some TDSB art headed to AGO should hang in schools: Trustee

Pieces of the Toronto District School Board’s multimillion-dollar art collection are leaving home, but at least one trustee hopes they’ll be back for a visit. “The AGO is a wonderful environment for us to have the artwork in, but it would be even nicer if we can actually have some of these artworks in the schools,” said Scarborough Southwest trustee Gary Crawford.
