Just adding onto this, the new crosswalk law, where you need to wait until the person completely exits the intersection. There is one right near the entrance of my work, and 9/10 times, someone is usually crossing. So I stop, wait for them to completely finish crossing, then proceed. I'd say out of all the times I do that, 50% of the time, people honk at me, and then speed right past because they don't know the new law. I feel like every renewal (5 years), drivers should redo a written test (similar to the G1) just to be re-familiarized with the rules of the road.
The new crosswalk law to what I read does not apply to what you describe. It applies to a
1) crossover - where overhead signs indicate pedestrian crossing Ont Reg 402/15
2) intersection which has school crossing guards HTA 176(3)
correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the crosswalks where it's a long yellow rectangle above with x's on it? There's one on Esna Park just north of Steeles in Markham (the one I'm referring to, anyone can google maps it if they like). It applies to those ones correct? I know they don't apply at intersections (traffic lights)

UnluckyDuck... If I google mapped the correct spot, that is NOT a "crosswalk".... that is a "crossover" therefore the vehicles can not proceed until pedestrians are completely off the road
