Is not signalling -as a cyclist- considered breaking the law? Pretty sure drivers don't have to signal by law either.

If your intended turn will affect another vehicle, then the HTA requires you to signal:

The driver or operator of a vehicle upon a highway before turning to the left or right at any intersection ... shall give a signal plainly visible to the driver or operator of the other vehicle of the intention to make the movement. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 142 (1).

Many years before this act came into being, I was stopped by the police in Stratford for failing to signal a left-hand turn. Twice, in fact. At empty intersections, as I recall. But the cops in Stratford were pretty big on teaching kids on bikes how to obey the rules.
