I attended, I somehow only ended up taking one screenshot but there are a few others on Twitter. The presenter said it would be available to view afterwards so maybe the link is coming?
The gist: aiming to have 20% of their fleet as eBikes, 1000 bikes by EOY, BikeShare at every single TTC station, expand to the island in the next 12-18 months I believe and also to all 26 wards.

The amount of real (and I mean real, not a painted line) bike infrastructure in this city is pitiful. With all this demand in spite of the infrastructure, imagine what would happen if we started rolling it out Dutch style. City would be transformed in 10 years...
There's no question the pace has been glacial until recently..........but, we have seen a real pick-up in pace. Granted, not to the level I'd like, and not without some ongoing headaches that I frequently document......
But....barring nasty surprises..........This City will be transformed in 10 years.
I don't often tout bureaucrats personally; but I really like Becky Katz (Head of Toronto's Cycling Unit); and many of her team, like her, are true believers and regular and/or every day cyclists.
Change is coming. Not fast enough.........but don't lose hope.
Next year should be really good if Council doesn't stifle the tentative plans.
What’s a bit irritating about bike lanes is the only thing slowing it down massive expansion is politics.
Unlike buildings and transit infrastructure it takes pennies and minimal construction time to build up fully protected bike lanes.
