Drivers still let their vehicles idle while waiting for someone in the store.
Our young adults still crave getting their driver's licence and their own car.

How can we begin to
change these attitudes...?


There have been promises
to reduce carbon emissions.

There have been promises
to improve infastructure.

I know things take time,
but here's a thought,

A federal and provincial tax exemption on everything bicycle,
especially including e-bikes,
would make a very powerful environmental statement, would cost
very little on the goverment's part,
it could be implemented in a heartbeat,
and if promoted agressively,
would begin to make a difference, almost imediately.

The other related issue is bicycle lanes.
They don't function as advertised.
While Multi-Use trails obviously
work very well in rural areas,
we only need to look to
London England's example
to see how well this can
also work in a city scape.

My interest in this issue stems from my observation of environmental
changes where I live, and the actual lack of change in people's
attitudes towards global warming and climate change.
