While I agree that charging to park one’s bike works against encouraging people to be less reliant on their cars, I am not as willing to share your view that this is a program designed to fail. When one considers the retrograde thinking that has characterized city planning for so long, any steps taken, however timid and tenuous, deserve some encouragement.

Similarly, although there are no barriers to separate the new bike lane on York Boulevard from car traffic, I tried it out for the first time the other day and found it a much more pleasant experience than trips of the past. In fact, none of the bike lanes in the area, with the exception of King Street West, have barriers, but my trips on them have been positive.
