Some Canadian drivers would give up sex for cars

I’m just re-reading that headline, and it makes us look like a nation of prostitutes.

Well, that’s not what I meant. What actually happened is that the World Wildlife Federation did a survey leading up to bike-to-work week (May 31 to June 4) that revealed some very interesting information about Canadian drivers.

Asked what they’d give up rather than hand over the keys, the True North Strong and Free said that 36 per cent would give up junk food, 14 per cent would stop drinking coffee, six per cent would turn off their televisions and two per cent would happily wave goodbye to nookie forever.

Interestingly, those most likely to go without sex were a) women and b) from Ontario. So there you go: one more reason to skip straight from Manitoba to Montreal.
