Discouraging – or encouraging – cycling

Re: Bike licences for Ottawa? It’s a bad and pointless idea, July 12

It should be remembered that cyclists on public roads already have to identify themselves to police when asked. So, your editorial is correct in stating that licensing cyclists wouldn’t help police crack down on violations.

I strongly suspect that discouraging cycling does not count as an argument against licensing in the minds of many people. Rather, it’s precisely what they’d like to achieve.
