MARKHAM, Ont. – “New thinking and more action on public policy and safety initiatives that recognize the importance of the growing motorcycling community across Canada” – that’s the message behind a new, collaborative-based Statement of Policy, launched on Tuesday by the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC).
As a result of extensive collaboration among regional groups and individual motorcycling enthusiasts across Canada, this Statement of Policy proposes a series of steps designed to create a better riding environment in Canada.
“This is a living document, and will evolve as new issues arise,” says Daniel Tessier, President of the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada. “We’re anxious to bring this Statement of Policy to the next level: to engage the motorcycling community, start a national, multi-stakeholder dialogue and guide the advancement of public policy and safety objectives for the benefit of riders and road users across Canada.”

Another important part of its government relations and advocacy program takes place in May, MCC Day on the Hill, in which MCC representatives will meet with Parliamentarians and officials to discuss issues that matter to the motorcycling community.
Comprised of national, provincial and territorial organizations, regional clubs, individual patrons and industry representatives, the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada is a national, grassroots advocacy organization championing motorcycling interests throughout Canada.
