    Do they think it's any safer for our kids to ride around in a peice of shit School Bus with no seat belt on and kids standing in the isle. Thats Bullshit.

    How do we take a proper rant and tell the gov to Fuck Off.

    Like you Drif I was planning something with my son for next summer and this isn't going to help.

    What about side-hacks?
    You know, I'm getting worried about this slow tightening of our social freedoms. It's like a slow push of social engineering towards the nanny state where we won't be allowd to do anything, unless it's virtual on a friggin computer.

    Next step might be to make it illegal for kids to ride in cars. Because cars are dangerous. And it should be illegal for them to walk outdoors. Because kids can get hurt there.

    My daughter (6 years old) is ecstatic as she can now reach the foot pegs as pillion (the legal requirement for a passenger.)

    She could still use a little growing, but next spring she wants me to take her to school on the bike.

    I think I can manage that. :D

    I wonder what the ruling on GPS's will be?

    they are going to make any handheld electronics illegal in a car.

    GPS's that stick to the windshield are still legal.

    Now, I run a Garmin handheld on the bike, is it legal if it's attached to the bike?

    Do our MP's not have better things to do?

    And why do dumb laws that apply to Southern Ontario have to be applied up here, where we have one of the lowest population densities in the country?

    I emailed the Hon. John Gerretsen, Liberal, Kingston and The Islands, and voiced my displeasure, however being a liberal like our miss Helena it was likely a waste of time.

    With 71 seats in the legislative assembly to to the Conservative party's 25 the Liberals have a pretty easy time with pushing through this kind of CRAP...:baldy

    good luck fighting it

    i'm pretty sure the rides i took at 5 or 6 really cemented my desire to someday own my own bike, i hope those dreams don't get squashed for your children.
