In our spirit of “bike partisanship”, we asked all of the federal party leaders to respond to a questionnaire containing two important questions on infrastructure funding and national cycling policy.
To help folks scanning numerous issues during the election interpret the answers, we convened a small panel of experts in cycling policy from around the country to independently evaluate the answers. Then we averaged their scores.
Here are the overall results:
Panel members were asked to score each of the responses using this criteria and scoring system. The overall score represents a simple average of the scores from all panelists. Panelists were asked to remain neutral, fair and to score the parties on their cycling policy only.
Canada Bikes would like to warmly thank the members of the panel:

Disagree? Think we missed something?
Tell us. Every opinion matters. The more discussion the better. It’s all part of raising awareness of the importance of cycling as a national issue. We’d love to get your feedback via Twitter, Facebook or email at info[a]canadabikes.org.
