Shot down...

Source: The Star
A series of motions from Toronto council members were shot down yesterday by Mayor David Miller's executive committee:
Walker's idea that Toronto petition the provincial and federal governments for tax exemptions for bicycle buyers was also shot down.

Cannot tell you why but it's unlikely that our elected officials are likely to support
that idea in future. Too bad.

Hey, maybe it's just me but seems like Toronto has a got a hate-on for bikes.

If more people were employed by the cycling 'industry' (or indirectly) ... then, those votes would count.

Otherwise, it'll be more of the same old, same old: handouts to the auto industry. Big $$$$s, too!
