Councillor Holyday is useless. Where’s he getting the money to hire thousands of bylaw officers to check if every 7 year old’s bike is licensed? His “data collection” reasoning below is redundant as well… that data is collected by the Canadian Census.
Coun. Stephen Holyday told CTV Toronto he wants a report on the possibility of creating a system that would require residents to license or register their bicycles.
“I think there’s a lot of opportunity to raise revenue,” Holyday said, but he added that it’s also a great way to collect a “tremendous amount of data.”
He said certain information — like where cyclists live, work and routes they take — could help improve infrastructure maintenance and increase “equipment standards and compliance.”
