Ah well, reactionary Toronto mayor aside, not everyone is backward thinking when it comes to multimodal transportation. He could use some saddle time, might chill him out.

As far as the Toronto Mayors "war on bikes" this view is sadly common. They look at bicycles as a transportation problem rather than a transportation solution. When I went to college one of the board of regents kids was badly hurt when hit by a cyclist so they banned cycling on campus and made a bike lane around the entire campus that was dangerous and usually filled busses and cars loading or unloading. After making it such a hassle to cycle to class nobody did. Soon students were having to park up to 2 miles away from campus and walk because everyone farther than walking distance drove instead of cycled. You'd think they would have learned their lesson that cycling is in fact a good thing but instead of reversing the ban on intra-campus cycling they built a parking garage.
