Remember the MMP in Ontario who wanted to ban kids from riding with their parent on the back of their motorcycle?

Well, this lady is at it again.

She has introduced a Private Members bill to establish a select committee to investigate methods of reducing injuries and fatalities on non-automobile vehicles.

“In the last 10 years, statistics show us that the number of injuries occurring on all terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, motorcycles and bicycles in Ontario have increased by 66 per cent,” Jaczek commented. “It is time to address the safety surrounding these vehicles in a comprehensive way.”

Now the growth in motorcycles alone in the last 10 year is up 300K
According to Stats Canada there were 330K registered for highway use motorcycles in 2000 and today there are just shy of 600K.

Do you think that more people on the roads have anything to do with that? And how can you compare snowmobiles to motorcycles?

Ontario - why do you keep re-electing this woman? In my humble opinion this woman is dangerous and WILL eventually find a way to shut down outdoor recreations if allowed to. She is, again, IMHO, a loose cannon, someone who wants to make a mark, make her political career a legacy - only you voters can decide her fate.

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this MMP and her attempts to take all of the enjoyment out of life. Join the discussion here, on Facebook or in our forums on
