My guest this week is Patrick Johnstone: we're going to discuss the newly increased BC dooring fine. 

Late last week, the BC government announced a stiff increase in fines for doorings. Doorings are entirely preventable, sometimes lethal and always painful. When I say doorings are preventable, I mean that every road user, as well as those who design our road infrastructure, need to take more responsibility for keeping everyone safe. Wanting to hear how the government came to this decision to increase the fines, and how it’s going to affect BC drivers and cyclists, I contacted Patrick.

Patrick is a New Westminster, BC City Councillor. He’s also an Environmental Geoscientist, and a rabble-rouser of some renown. Rabble-rousers are some of my favourite people.
