The Government of Canada recently announced in its budget the elimination of tariffs on certain sporting equipment. Unfortunately, bicycles did not make the list — and we believe that the current 13% tariff on bicycles is unfair. It adds to the cost of bicycles in Canada and its punishing the cyclists.
Members of the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada (BTAC), independent retail members, customers and partners are circulating a petition requesting that the government immediately amend the tariff elimination list to include bicycles.
BTAC’s link to the petition can be found below. Please print copies of the petition and have customers, staff and friends sign them.
