The death Toronto cyclist Darcy Allan Sheppard and the arrest of former Ontario attorney general Michael Bryant put the risks of cycling in the city back in the spotlight.

Spacing Magazine publisher Matthew Blackett joins us now to take on the issue of accommodating cyclists in Toronto. Spacing Magazine bills itself as a publication devoted to understanding the urban landscape.

Mr. Blackett is an active cyclist and promoter of better cycling infrastructure, but is also considered by many to be a moderate and thoughtful voice on the issue.

We are also joined by Torontoist editor-in-chief David Topping for his view on how motorists and cyclists can better share the road.

Please weigh in on whether motorists and cyclists can live in peace and share the road in a major urban centre.
