MESSAGE FROM JOHN MILLOY'S OFFICE
to CYCLE ONTARIO
.... On another matter, I am writing to let you know that John has drafted a motion to the legislature and I wanted to run it by you before it's finalized. Please feel free to give it a read and provide any feedback or comments. A motion is not a piece of legislation; it's introduced to seek a consensus from the Members of the House in order to press the government for more action on an issue.
To that end, John is introducing a motion on helmet safety. You will note that it does request that the government make bike helmets
mandatory for everyone regardless of age.
An important element too, that I think touches on some of the issues you and Kris raised during the meeting, is the final point --that any safety campaign also address the greater safety issues of cyclists on roadways.
Please give the motion a read and feel free to comment. If there is anything you wanted to bring to John's attention, however, please let me know before Monday.
Drew (an assissant to Milloy)
