\ By Gary Webb-Proctor \ Despite hundreds of signatures on a petition asking for a traffic light to be installed at the corner of Cedarvale Avenue and Cosburn Avenue in the wake of a pedestrian fatality there last year, Toronto City Council at its July meeting deferred the matter until the fall. The deferment came in part because of the death of longtime Ward 28 councillor Pam McConnell the morning of Friday, July 7, the fourth and final day of the packed-agenda July meeting, which prompted the council to adjourn earlier than expected.  But the proposal, initiated by Ward 31 councillor Janet Davis and earlier approved over staff objections by Toronto and East York Community Council in June, had only been left till late in the meeting due to opposition from some council members who regard the idea as being “anti-car.” Councillor Davis said, in an emailed statement sent while vacationing after the meeting, that “”it is unfortunate that the item was held for debate and deferred. “The safety of pedestrians and cyclists has to be paramount when we consider traffic control measures.  This is the site of so many community facilities and activities —and near-misses.
