100 in 1 Day: Buzz on the Bridge

Details from the organizer, Mark:

Hey Everyone,
I am going to be doing 'Buzz on the Bridge' at Wallace Street bridge again this year as part of 100in1day Toronto on Saturday June 6th. I'm hoping to build off the success of last year's event, which was really great. I'd like to plan something similar to last year, but this year I am hoping to do more ground work early to get some other key partners on board and maybe do more advanced 'advertising'.
If anyone has any thoughts or ideas to contribute, I am all ears. I would like to set up a meeting soon for those who are interested in getting a bit more involved.
I have posted the event on the website at: https://toronto.100in1day.ca and even got a twitter handle for the event @buzzonbridge
There is a 100in1day workshop downtown at MaRS on the evening of April 8 (Wednesday from 6-8) that I will likely attend to get the planning going, if anyone wants to join.
Thanks, bye for now,

More info at the Buzz on the Bridge listing at the 100in1day site.

Tim Horton's

The weird intersection - where Dundas meets Dupont meets annette..and eventually Weston...
There's a coffee time and an Active Green & Ross.

It looks like maybe beside the active green & ross they're putting in a Tim Horton's.
Anyone know anything about this development?

I find that Tim Horton's usually kills off Coffee Times and often times that means a neighbourhood has officially made it. Well, more so with the elimination of coffee time. I'm not being cruel, it's been mentioned before.

Anyway - anyone know anything of the development?

On Monday November 14th at 8:00am, there will be a memorial for Jenna Morrison, the cyclist who was killed by a truck on November 7th. The memorial will take place where she perished, at the corner of Dundas St. West and Sterling Rd. (southern end of West Toronto Railpath).

A local group of neighbourhood cyclists are riding down together:

"Hello friends and neighbours,
A number of people will be riding down the railpath to attend the vigil for Jenna. The meet-up is happening at Dupont & the railpath shortly after 7:30 and we will leave at around 7:40/45. Please come and join us if you can."

Cyclists riding from other parts of the city are meeting at Bloor and Spadina at 7:30 to ride over to the memorial site.

The memorial has been organized by Advocacy For Respect for Cyclists.

Some more details about Jenna and this heartbreaking incident can be found in the National Post.

Ms. Morrison was married and the mother of a three-year-old son according to one source. She was expecting her second child.
The crumpled mass of bits of steel that had been Ms. Morrison’s bicycle and a trailer in which she pulled her son, which lay at the scene Monday night, included a child’s bike helmet hanging from the handlebars, with a Spiderman design on it.
