FROM THE COMMENTS:
"The pressing issue here is the 14 pedestrians killed in TO so far this year."

"It is clear that the provincial automobile registry has failed to protect Torontonians and this can only mean that a national automobile registry is desperately needed to stop the bloodshed."
I'm just waiting for Iggy to suggest a national "Nerf Car" initiative.

The pressing issue here is the 14 pedestrians killed in TO so far this year.

It is clear that the provincial automobile registry has failed to protect Torontonians and this can only mean that a national automobile registry is desperately needed to stop the bloodshed.
