From a resident.
Well it was no surprise to me that I am reading since the inception of this discriminatory , wastefull by law has produced no fruit
I commented on the lead up to and spoke to council on vote night on the matter . Not only was there only opponents that night speaking other than the sales person whom attended to promote the equipment . Two Councilors Guthrie and Kovack advised that they would not support it as it was going to cost in training and resourse time for no substantial purpose .
The test itself is flawed it has presumptions of flexibility for antique bikes without discretion in law . It is discriminatory against one type of motor vehical when it was clearly accepted the larger year round problem of vehical noise was not motorcycles at all . The test has been successfully defeated in court in Edmonton repeatedly .
I guess we now have a couple of paperweight test equipment pcs and lots of training hours to add up . I guarantee nobody changed there exhaust and removed what they felt necessary for they’re personal safety or through out there old bikes due to this
However I do know that many riding groups who spend a great deal of money at local restaurants motels etc while traveling flagged Guelph last riding season as a place not to be as unwelcoming to bikes
Well hopefully this brings about another reason for a change in council and leadership this year DM
