MCC and BC Safety Council Announce...
RPM - A National Motorcycle Symposium

April 19-21, 2007, Whistler, BC Canada
Richmond, BC and Toronto, ON Sep 15, 2006 The British Columbia Safety Council (BCSC) and the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) have partnered to host RPM – an annual National Motorcycle Symposium to be debuted in Whistler, BC, April 19, 20 & 21, 2007 (Thursday to Saturday). This ground-breaking event will address the challenges of Risk and Performance Management (RPM) for motorcyclists. Sharing information about the risks and solutions for the riding community is the goal of the symposium.

The three days of meetings, presentations and hands-on riding sessions will bring together motorcyclists, educators, road engineers, loss preventions experts, enforcement, journalists and other key people to exchange information and develop harm-reduction strategies.

Road crashes among all types of vehicles are one of our greatest public health challenges, resulting in more loss of life and disability for children, youth and young adults than all diseases combined! The fact is that almost all are totally preventable and yet most road users are inadequately prepared to deal with the situations that generate these incidents. Motorcycle crashes are even more tragic, as the motorcycle ironically has the best observation and collision-avoidance capability of any vehicle.

“This is the first time that all the key people will be together to address motorcycle riding issues in Canada,” says Bryan Lowes, Executive Director, BCSC. “Riding brings freedom for riders but that freedom is purchased with heightened skills, knowledge and attitude.”

“This event will be the first of what will be an annual, national event led by MCC & BCSC.” adds Peter Jacobs, MCC General Manager. “We will launch in BC, and then see it move around the country for subsequent events, with local participation and content.” “Canada has been a leader in many areas of motorcycling” says Peter Sheppard, Chair of the MCC, ‘including, for example, rider training. We all love riding, and this symposium will help make our riding environment better.”

Early sponsors for this event include the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia and Deeley Harley Davidson Canada.
