Some things should be free

he suggestion that cyclists should be licensed and pay a fee to ICBC is preposterous

In response to John Wyllie, I agree that “share the road” should be implemented.

Sharing to me means using the road in a manner that allows for the flow of traffic without hindering and endangering others. The suggestion that cyclists should be licensed and pay a fee to ICBC is preposterous and shows the lack of concern and understanding by John Wyllie for the right to freedom of movement.

Cycling and walking are not the same as driving motor vehicles that pollute and cause injuries and death. Are people so brainwashed now that they demand to be licensed and pay a fee for everything, including walking, sunbathing on the beach, gardening and reading the paper, because if such mindless ideas are implemented, we will become slaves to an ever-increasing bureaucracy.
