    Currently, there is financial incentive to fail then pass you. There are instructors that are lax as long as you buy more hours of training with them. They are well known in the Chinese/Chinatown circle.

    Turning them into government employee remove that financial incentives.

Never heard back.

    Or Mandatory winter tires.

    All the at fault or slow down I have seen is due to ill equipped vehicles.

    BC mandates Oct 1st to Mar 31st to be on winters on highways. Doesn't hurt for Alberta to adopt the same, at least for the highways.

    Since we're off topic anyways... how does that work for rental vehicles?

    Is it bullshit like this where they charge you extra?

    It won't be BS when it's the law.

    This requirement also applies to rental passenger vehicles in Québec, as well as mopeds, motorized scooters and motorcycles.
    Rental cost will adjust accordingly of course.

    I've found rental costs out east to be no different than out west in the winter. I specifically rent cars in Quebec vs Ontario so I get winter tires for recce during races in the winter

    Renting a car out here costs nothing. Renting a car in LA, yikes.
