I mean, he's pretty close. To get the full rebate the bike would have to be $3000+. And the cargo bike $6000+

Actually the population has grown to 43000, and I see ebikes being used inWhitehirse every day.

In that case yes. But why not just do a rebate program for people to exercise and pedal

Just curious how many days per year is weather in Yukon actually suitable to use ebikes?

You would need to burn pretty much the equivalent energy to pedal a bike as you would charging the battery to drive your ebike, unless you can charge your bike with renewable sources.
It's not only the cost to you to purchase the food you eat, it's what it cost the Earth to grow and produce.
If you're miserable, maybe you could try just being miserable in silent. This is a rebate on a bike, not an excuse for you to vomit all over the internet.

I was wondering this too... As an "southern" city dweller, I'm guessing Yukon has maybe 2 or 3 months max where they can actually bike

More than you think. Climate is moderate. Yes it does get cold, but there were many days this spring where it was warmer in Whitehorse than it was here in Toronto. I visited back in February (before covid) and want to go back. I have Whitehorse set up in my weather app for tracking and general interest.

A lot of their people rely on their environment for fishing and hunting which is being threatened by global warming

BS...since when do fish and animals prefer -40c in order to multiply faster ? If anything it should be the opposite and you should be seeing an abundance of wildlife with warmer weather.
My tire went flat the other day...it must be bcs of global warming.
