After a smarmy question posed by someone from the Ottawa Media Pack on if PM Stephen Harper needed a license to ride an ATV especially on a remote airport runway (see here), the picture above came to mind of Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff riding a bike in Ontario.
There is no law in Ontario for people to wear a helmet while riding a bike if they over the age of 18 but according to the Ontario Liberal governments website:
“Cyclists over 18 are encouraged to wear helmets for their own safety” and
“Research shows that helmets can be extremely effective in preventing head injuries. About three-quarters of all cycling fatalities involve head injuries. The Ontario government is committed to promoting cycling safety”
BTW, what does the local bylaw read for riding on sidewalks I wonder? Did anyone in the media ask Iffy that?
Funny how there is one set of questions asked Stephen Harper by the Ottawa Media Pack, and another for Iffy.
