To quote the Mayor:

Mayor Naheed Nenshi said he thinks the cycle track network was a false controversy, pointing to the fact he got 850 emails to his office, 825 of which were supportive of the project.

“People kept saying this is controversial, but it’s controversial I think in the way secondary suites are controversial, which is it’s controversial around the council table,” he said.

“In fact, as it turned out with the final vote, not that controversial around the council table.”
