New bike commuter :)

Hi there, I'm a new bike commuter in Toronto I ride a low-end sporty looking hybrid with a step-through frame from my LBS.

Joined the forum because I have just made a close acquaintance with the Toronto pavement (see here for a full account: https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...highlight=Ouch) and I'm a bit spooked. Looking for some moral support to help me get back on the bike!

Welcome, and just get back out there, it was bound to happen eventually, just got you a bit earlier. Know you will focus more on defensive riding which is always good.
