Motorcyclists in Quebec have had enough of ridiculously high government fees, and on Sunday, they protested at the provincial legislature to get that message out.
Quebec, already known for bloodthirsty provincial motorcycle registration fees, is currently planning to continue to raise the price until 2021. At the low end, motorcyclists are already paying more than $275 to register a small-capacity bike (125 cc or less), and at the high end, registration fees can be more than $1,500 for superbikes.
CBC says the Coalition des Motocyclistes du Quebec has already taken action against the price hikes, circulating a petition last year that gathered 75,000 signatures. It wasn’t enough, as the provincial government went ahead and continued its planned rate hikes. So the Coalition took things to the next level, organizing yesterday’s protest at the legislature. Although we haven’t seen a solid number on attendance yet, CBC says hundreds were in attendance (we heard 550 bikes showed up).
