But the video snippet may not show the entire interaction between the two men, and as Torontonians have seen before, in such lethal matters, all is not always as clear-cut as it may first appear.
The poster child for just such complications may be the 2009 case of former Ontario attorney-general Michael Bryant’s lethal encounter with cyclist Darcy Sheppard.
After an independent investigation showed that Sheppard had attacked Bryant, who was in his car with his then-wife, and that Sheppard had had six previous altercations with other motorists earlier that day, a special prosecutor from outside Ontario dropped all charges of criminal negligence causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle — against Bryant in 2010.

My understanding is that an ongoing discussion was taking place between skateboarder and cabbie, as they moved forward. There is so much wrong with this picture, already.
My gut reaction, knowing nothing, is that non-motorized wheelers in this town, every day before they get on those wheels and head out into traffic, should take a hammer and gently tap themselves on the skull with it two or three times. In an argument with a motorized vehicle, even when you are right, you are going to lose.
