Hi fellow scooter riders. The day has ARRIVED...
On the morning of Tuesday, July 16th we will be handing over our change.org petition (re: restoring the right of scooter riders to park on city sidewalks) to Councilor Josh Matlow in front of city hall. We are going to hold a RALLY and ride the petition to city hall on our scooters! I am currently working on media coverage. PLEASE consider coming out and joining the rally, if you are able to. The more people come out, the more scooter horns blaring, the better we look. The details are below…
On Tuesday, July 16th at 8:45 AM sharp we will meet at the corner of John and Wellington (the north west corner of the CBC building). We will then ride our scooters to city hall by way of John and Queen. At 9 AM we will be met by Councilor Matlow and his team in front of city hall. We will hand our petition over to Councilor Matlow then.
After handing over the petition, the rally is officially over and people will return to whatever it is they do on a Tuesday morning. Then, we will all cross our fingers and wait. The issue of scooters parking on city sidewalks might be brought before city council on July 16th or it might be later in the week. It might pass easily or it might be held up by councillors depending on whether or not it is deemed controversial. These are questions that can’t be answered at this moment.
Again, please consider coming out. AND forward both the petition and notice of this event to every scooter rider you can think of. I want a big noisy (orderly) gang of scooter riders making their wishes heard!
The petition is:
