I find making a distinction between citizens and leaders is a bit off. The decision makers are put in place by citizens through the democratic process! And there is a massive opportunity in municipal politics to make big changes through the ballot box, since such a small percentage of eligible voters actually participate! Staff serve at the will of council (to borrow a phrase from senior Hamilton staff overheard at a council meeting or two). Council serve at the will of the people. Make cycling a vote-getter and maybe it will get more of a priority.
