Ah, my wonderful, misguided home of Burlington.

We're also the owners of the Worst Bike Lanes Ever.

Take a look a the bike lanes over the 403/QEW on Appleby Line. The length of the 'bike lanes' is approximately 10 metres, and you have to cross the freeway on-ramp to get to them. I'll send in a photo sometime.

In addition to the 5 signs warning of the upcoming bike crossing, there's the obligatory 'cyclists must cross to dismount' sign. I say 'thanks but no thanks' and take my chances on the road.

Of course in Burlington, the whole purpose of all of this incredible effort to make walking and cycling unfriendly is not to prevent pedestrians and cyclists from being killed, but to save the municipal government from the inevitable lawsuits when they are.
