I know you guys don't like to hear it, but cycling doesn't do much ATM in terms of revenue for the province. By and large yours is a vocal minority, a headache, and doesn't contribute enough in terms of helping the environment (at least in your current numbers) for the province to have an incentive to help you or your infrastructure.

The country uses 2BN dollars/year (ish) on infrastructure - it all comes from motor fuel tax. You guys, as cyclists, don't contribute to it. The bike lanes, as such, can't be a priority.

Edit: Canada, of course, uses more than 2BN, but 2BN of the dollars come from motor fuel taxes - just to be clear.
