You need your local member to introduce a private members bill banning idiot members from introducing private member bill.

These pollies are so stupid that the problem here lies is that you would probably find a member stupid enough to introduce the above recommend bill.

PS. Who votes for these idiots.

Not me for sure!The bill was introduced by the fuckwad MP in our riding and will not be passed in the Parlimentry term as it has only had 1st reading and the election will be called on the weekend.I sure this dumb fuck will try to reintroduce it once more when the new Parliment opens.I have been at war with this idiot a couple of times over other equally dumb things including once on our doorstep.Typical fucking Liberal!

Another reason to buy from the US aside from the 30% increase in price.

It won't make a difference.

(2) No person shall manufacture, import into Canada or sell or lease to another person a vehicle unless it is equipped with a speed limiter that is engaged and set to a maximum speed that is not greater than 150 kilometres per hour.

This is F*ck SUCK!!! The bill better not pass!

I suppose you all already know about the Ontario street racing law that any speeding ticket written for more than 50km over the posted limit is automatically a fine of $10,000 and forfeiture of the vehicle.

So I wonder if you'll be able to turn off the limiter if you go out on the track.


HMMMM......I just thought of something, a lot of "American" cars are actually manufactured in Canada. I guess that law will apply to those cars built in Canada but sold in the US. That will certainly put a crimp on the new Camero, just to name one.

What bullshit. It will never pass of course, but even the audacity of someone proposing it.

Can someone please post the MP's name so we can contact him?

What a dork. He must be afraid to merge on the 401 in the morning.

MP wants speed limiters for cars too

MP wants speed limiters for cars too

Todayís Trucking Jack Meli September 2, 2008

OTTAWA -- If truck engines can be governed, then why not cars as well? Thatís what Scarborough, Ont. Liberal MP Jim Karygiannis wants to know.

A former parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Transport, Karygiannis recently introduced a private members bill that would require electronic speed limiters set at 150 km/h on passenger vehicles manufactured after Jan. 1, 2010, according to the Midland Free Press.

While the proposed threshold is still 40 or 50 km/h higher than most posted highway speed limits in Canada, Karygiannis said he chose 150 km/h because thatís the speed that authorizes police to confiscate vehicles.

"Why does anyone need a car that goes over 150 when you canít go that fast or you lose your car," Karygiannis told Land Line, the official publication of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA).

In order for his bill to be heard in Ottawa, Karygiannis said he needs to convince the Conservative speaker of the House to allow debate.

Karygiannis admitted that there is not much support at this moment.
