Ban the Automobile: Instrument of Death, written by Rudy Croken former NAACC PEI Director.
Here is what Greg Williams' review. | AUGUST 22, 2017
At the turn of the last century, automobiles were busy reshaping North American cities and making travel more convenient. That is, all except in one Canadian province. In the early 1900s, automobiles were banned from the roads of Prince Edward Island.
“When I first heard that, I thought it was ridiculous,” says author Rudy Croken, whose book Ban the Automobile: Instrument of Death, released earlier this summer, shines a light on a little known aspect of P.E.I.’s past.
“When I was growing up, my dad told me about the ban, but I thought it might have been for a month or so,” Croken says. “I had no idea (it was more than a decade-long struggle) to get cars on the road.”

New initiative about paying public tribute to some of Quebec's top-end restorers of antique vehicles
From the NAACC's Michel Lamoureux
Below are links to a "video duo" (with one version in French and the other in English) that provides a short narrative about a program I developed and helped launch across the Province, with support from a very cool, enthusiastic sponsor.
This unique initiative is about paying public tribute to some of Quebec's top-end restorers of antique vehicles who contribute in no small way to the preservation of our collective automotive heritage.
The first recipient of the award featured here had just completed the restoration of a rare 1924 Cadillac Roadster which was unveiled for the first time to an audience of cheering afficionados.
As in this case, all future recipients (4 per year) are to be selected for their proven top-end skills, and the vehicle to be unveiled each time will be rare and/or uniquely significant from an historical standpoint.
Here are the links to the video clips. Please feel free to use and share these as you see fit.
Automakers have filed a lawsuit against the EPA's decision to make E15 (gasoline with 15 percent alcohol) legal for all cars after 2007. They argue that, among other problems, the blend could damage the engine. Wait, moonshiners used to run their cars on 190-proof hooch. Can ethanol really do damage to an engine? Yes. Here's how.
Please keep aware of what is happening in your area.
Vancouver is set to have bicycle only areas. We are bike overload here in Vancouver.
I am going to write mayor and council and ask that, if and when, they do ban all cars from the Vancouver downtown core that they make exception for old cars that are on a club sanctioned event or are
performing a chartable service such as a wedding.
Soon we will be overrun by By–Laws here in the Vancouver city core.
