    Whether a vehicle is electric or not, if it is personally owned, it takes up valuable land at home, work, and other destinations. In cities and town centres we should be encouraging car sharing instead.

    When people don’t pay for the insurance and car payments up front but book a vehicle instead, they use it less often. The health benefits alone are enormous (saving us all health dollars in reduced obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and improved mental health when people walk and bike and take transit more).

    Obviously, bicycling can be easier for seniors, for example, than walking as it puts less strain on the hips and knees. One can go farther and carry more. This should be encouraged for all BCers with the purchase of e-bikes in hilly BC and with rebates. Please focus on the right things to rebate for a win, win, win situation.
