I'm always surprised to see self-styled fiscal conservatives advocate wasting taxpayer dollars by demanding that governments focus special attention on bogus problems - like 'dangerous' cyclists - instead of real dangers that are actually measurably injuring and killing people.

Every year in Hamilton, automobile collisions kill 20 people and injure over 2,000 people. On top of that, air pollution kills 100 people prematurely and puts 700 people in the hospital- and more than half of our air pollution comes from automobiles.

Anyone who is serious about reducing harm and spending public dollars effectively will focus on these issues instead of playing distracting, pointless culture war games with cycling.
