From The CBC:

Montreal's bus drivers' union wants the city to move the bicycle path on St. Urbain Street from the west side to the east, claiming it's a dangerous route that makes accidents more likely to happen.

Drivers for the Montreal Transit Corp. have asked the city and the province's workplace health and safety board (CSST) to move the path from one side of the one-way street to the other.

The path currently runs down the west side of the north-south street – the same side as several stops serviced by the No. 55 bus.
