I just finished filling out the form to volunteer for this event.

STR fills a very important role. Most advocacy work is done at the municipal level, and rightly so. However, the province fills a very important role in providing funding and standards. It is vital that there exist a provincial advocacy group.

Why? Because the Ontario's "Bicycle Facilities" design manual is rather crappy. And we need to have proper funding of bicycle infrastructure by the province, instead of multi-billion dollar car-only highway boondoggles or bailing out the car industry with billions of dollars of taxpayer dollars. And we need to get rid of stupidity such as a child helmet law that so strongly discourages children from cycling. And bizarre things such as an enormous provincial subsidy for electric cars and zero for electric bicycles. Etc, etc.
