Chatham Daily News - Ontario, CA: "Spinning wheels on laws
Posted 2 mins ago

The politics of protest works just fine in Ontario, especially if it's done over a keyboard.
After the announcement backing off on some restrictions planned for young drivers, we now know which way the Ontario Liberals will go when there are political tradeoffs to be made.
The decision by Transportation Minister Jim Bradley to back off on some restrictions proposed for young drivers was based on backlash, not on the merits of driver safety, which, ostensibly, was the reason for making the changes in the first place.
Not that young protesters didn't have a point, but the province didn't exactly blink on this one -- it withered."
