I've had one close call on Cannon so far. I was riding eastbound between Bay and Park and a driver was trying to turn out of a parking lot. I could see that she was only looking eastbound and a break in westbound traffic was coming up so I started to slow down. Sure enough, she pulled out right into my path. I braked hard enough for my back tire to slew out sideways but we stopped about half a metre short of colliding.

I held my hands up in a gesture that I hoped combined "please don't kill me" with "I'm a bit disappointed you didn't notice me". The driver actually shot me an angry look for being in her way and shooed me along. I guess I was being one of those entitled cyclists I keep hearing about.
