    Currently in B.C. bicycles and transportation fares are exempt from PST charges, and clean energy vehicles are eligible for rebates up to $5,000. Purchases of new electric bicycles, and their electric parts, are charged PST, and are not eligible for rebates. In addition to this not being very fair or equitable, the PST on electric bikes is also a real hassle for bike shops when they are repaited as PST is charged on the electrical parts but not the other parts of a bike.


    Let’s work towards eliminating this PST.

    Please support Resolution B15: Active Transportation Strategy will be voted on at the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) conference in mid-September.

    Mayors & Councillors Pass Motor Vehicle Act Improvements Resolution

    Great news! Resolution B102: Updating the BC Motor Vehicle Act to Improve Safety for All Road Users passed at Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) conference. Thanks to the City of New Westminster for moving this resolution forward.

    While this is a very important step forward, much work still needs to be done to help ensure that the BC Government updates the Motor Vehicle Act to make our roads safer for people walking and cycling.

    Your donation will be a real help enabling us to reach more people and groups who support cycling and engage government officials. Please contribute today! 

    Proposed changes to improve the safety and comfort of people cycling, walking and using a wheelchair include:

    • Change of name of the act, as it applies to all modes, not just motor vehicles
    • Specify minimum passing distance of 1.5m¬†for people cycling, walking and using a wheelchair
    • Legal definitions of bicycle lanes and separated cycling facilities to enable better enforcement against vehicles blocking bike lanes
    • Legalization of bicycle specific signals
    • Allowing riding two abreast¬†
    • Removal or updated as near to the right clause
    • Enabling cities to create blanket speed limits less than 50 km/h
    • A default speed limit of 30 km/h on local neighbourhood streets (no centre line)

    More information on the proposed changes here.

    Please write your mayor and council thanking them for supporting the changes to the Motor Vehicle Act.

    Donate - Road Safety

    Your generous contribution will really help our efforts to encourage the Government to make roads safer for everyone cycling, walking and driving. Priorities include:

    • Decreasing driving by providing people with more cycling, walking and transit choices
    • Safer speed limits on highways and in communities
    • Increasing the number of red light cameras at intersections¬†and using them for automated speed enforcement
    • Automated speed cameras which ¬†could cut fatal & serious collisions by more than 1/3
    • Cracking down on distracted driving with increased penalties and greater enforcement
    • Doubling the number of roadside breath tests and¬†significantly increasing penalties¬†

  • commented on Seaside Greenway emailer 2018-02-08 10:54:36 -0800
    t your meeting on February 19, I urge you to vote for a safe and delightful Seaside Greenway route in the Kitsilano Beach area. The Greenway should be a park and seaside experience for both people walking and biking, similar in design and intent throughout the 28 km of Greenway.


    This is an important moment for cycling in parks in the City. Park Board staff have been saying that Park Board wants cycling to, not through parks. This could really affect the great recreational, transportation and environmental synergies that cycling and parks share.


    Commissioners, I want to be able to bike in the park with the children in my life learning to ride, the older family and friends who are less stable and all of the rest of us who love to get out in the fresh air and enjoy the exercise of biking! Bonus, we can get to the park in a non-polluting manner as well!


    The Seaside Greenway Kits Beach area bike routing on the narrow shared path by the sea as well as on the roads by the parks is dangerous and not enjoyable year round. Improvements need to be made.


    Although the scope of this project currently doesn’t include east of Maple Street, we encourage Park Board to work with Engineering staff to take this opportunity to look for a routing along the north side of Ogden Ave (to avoid legal issues with adjacent Hadden Park)


    I look forward to being able to bike safely and with the enjoyment of sea and park in that area and to have a chance to provide feedback at a public consultation.
