    The percentage of voters that will consider this issue to be highly important in the election is vanishingly small.
    That's the unfortunate part.

    Nope. This is it. Out of all the things the NDP have done. THIS is the one thing that will bring them down.
    Who said it was?

    How about they wear a thin, one layer turban under a helmet?

    Can you be less vague?
    You stated that the NDP signed their own death wish with this new law, I'm saying this new law will not be the thing that will bring them down. Not sure how that is being so vague.

    No I didn't.

    I said:

    I suspect that the vast majority of Albertans are against this new law. If so, the NDP just further signed their own death wish.
    Note that they also released this backwards new law right before a major long weekend. Even so, just on the Global and Calgary Herald site, there are hundreds of comments and all are vehemently opposed to this law.

    Semantics, it will not be the thing that'll bring down the NDP.

    I did misread it but I still disagree with you.

    Do you honestly believe that this'll be the straw that breaks the camel's back?

    I have to say, I'm reading this too and I don't think he ever did say this is the straw. I'm reading it the same way that it's just another stick on the pile.

    It's catering to special interest groups and it's bullshit. The ONLY way I'd support this decision is if it's applied across the board and far higher premiums are levied by those who make the CHOICE to ride helmet free.
    Totally agreed! There shouldn't be different laws for different people and the last part is the only way id be ok with this too. I have a close friend who took his bike around his loop without a helmet and he lost control going around 30kmhr and hes lucky to be alive.

    This happened a few years ago in BC - you cant allow one religious group an exemption and not another. Utterly idiotic.

    I don't wear a turban nor do I practice any sort of religion. But I am no longer wearing a helmet when I ride my bikes on general principle.




    Jk, I'll still wear it, however, I shouldn't have to by law.

    Quite baffled this became a thing. But how does a turban stay on at 110+ km/h? Never wore one so I'm actually curious..

    Sorry if this comes off offensive, not my intention.
    Would any rider be able to put on a turban and ride with no helmet? The cop would obviously pull you over but couldn't you just say thats your religion? how does a cop prove your religion on the spot?

    This guy's skull will probably be fine for any collision under 70 km/h

    Thats exactly what you could do - and why wearing a cauldron on your head is the same thing but is not an "approved" religious head wear.

    How long before this guy and his crew start referring to their headwear as turbans?

    Someone should start making touques that look like turbans for all the people that want to ride without helmets. You could make a killing!


    Once again though I think the government needs to stay out of religion. We should all tolerate religion so long as it complies with our laws. Laws should be the same for everyone and should not vary depending on religion.

    When safety is a concern, this is just outrageous.

    It's totally different than something like this link below, which I think is cool.

    Seeing Edmonton police rocking a turban and it looks nice to boot.

    ^^ That police turban looks pretty sweet, better than the normal hats haha. I like that that's an option.

    As for the helmets, meh, who cares. On a single passenger motorcycle/bicycle or whatever else, if your religious customs are more important than your life and/or leaving your family without a father/mother/brother/whatever and you don't want to wear a helmet, go for it.

    Only real downside is when they crash and need 10X the medical care, taxpayers are still paying for it...and you can't decide not to pay those taxes due to your own beliefs. That is where I start to disagree with it.
