Six ways to get a ticket on your bike in Vancouver:
Not having a bell - $109
Failing to stop at a stop sign - $167
Two abreast on the road -$109
Riding on the sidewalk - $109
Not wearing a helmet - $29
Riding without due care - $195
Cycling advocates are stunned that the Vancouver Police Department chose the month of June to start a ticketing campaign against cyclists. June is Bike Month in Vancouver, a time when citizens are encouraged to get out of their cars and onto their bikes. We speak with Lisa Slakov of the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
