Munro leaves behind legacy

On March 7, 2012, the Canada Safety Council lost a significant ally in our endeavours to make motorcycle training safe and accessible across the country. Mr. Stuart Munro was a pioneer of the rider training program in Canada, first offering novice training in Ottawa in 1967, then partnering with the Canada Safety Council in 1974 to create Canada’s first national motorcycle rider training program.

Additionally, Mr. Munro was a regular contributor to American-based Rider magazine, where his regularly-published columns on motorcycle safety were printed throughout the world in English-language publications.

Mr. Munro was awarded a Lifetime Honorary Membership with the Canada Safety Council in April 2008 for all his dedicated work in championing motorcycle safety and training and bringing it to the forefront of the nation’s mind.

Though Mr. Munro may no longer be with us, his work will remain with us for a long time to come.
