I can't help you much with the Milton side of your trip, but the waterfront from Niagara through to Toronto is extremely well developed with safe infrastructure! You can get from Niagara Falls to Etobicoke (where there the trail falls apart for a few kilometers due to Lakefront's terrible multi-use sidewalk thing) and then on to the rest of Toronto's beautiful waterfront infrastructure. So long as you keep close to the lake, Burlington, Hamilton, and Oakville are very safe for cycling- psycho commuters are mostly in the arterial road and freeway strips.

Canada is not meant for cycling, more so in winter weathers
What's up with Canadians in Southern Ontario pretending we live in igloos year round? We have a very mild climate- in Hamilton, our winters lately have only had a few weeks of lasting snow-cover. Northern Europe is just as cold with the same or more snow, yet they have healthy bike cultures. Hell, we have some very strong Norwegian pro-cyclists this year and they are a winter sports powerhouse. I think we push this "Canada is too cold to bike!" logic because on average we're overweight and lazy, so it's in our selfish interest to pretend that outdoor activities are impossible.
