'It's huge': Australian couple videotapes close encounter with grizzly near Canmore

  'It's huge': Australian couple videotapes close encounter with grizzly near Canmore Jessica Boshoff and husband Dale Boshoff were just a few minutes into a hike with a friend on June 5 when they came upon the big bruin on the trailhead. "Jordan's shoelace came undone so we stopped and Dale looked up and saw the bear," said Jessica. "He sort of looked at it and he was like, 'what is that? It's a bear,' then he said, 'no, surely it can't be a bear,' and it took a couple of seconds for him to process. Then he just said 'guys,' and I could tell in his voice that he was serious, so we looked up and saw the bear right in front of us, and then got behind [Dale] because he had the bear spray.

He wasn't forced off the road or hit with a plume of black exhaust smoke, as in previous encounters. He and the driver made no physical contact.

But cyclist Dave Palibroda says his caught-on-video verbal exchange with a Saskatoon motorist on Monday is definitely "the angriest anyone's ever been at me."

"He seemed only calm when he asked if I wanted to fight," said Palibroda, laughing nervously.

"What?"

A chest-mounted GoPro

Palibroda, a Saskatoon green building and energy management consultant, was biking home after work along Broadway Avenue — in the middle of the far-right lane — when the driver of a silver SUV passed him in the next lane and also appeared to honk his horn at Palibroda.

"There's a difference between a nice, friendly honk-honk and this was a lay-on-the-horn, very aggressive, get-off-the-road kind of horn," said Palibroda.

The longtime Saskatoon resident captured the SUV on video using a small GoPro attached to a backpack strap over his chest.

He does that.

Palibroda says he frequently films Saskatoon streetscapes mid-ride to capture the random flicker of life.

"There's so much stuff that happens, whether it's funny things or neat things or historical things."

But the video also comes in handy in court, as it did for a previous encounter with one driver he says ran him off the road. Palibroda handed his footage over to the Saskatoon Police Service.

"The guy ended up getting charged," he said. "And the judge even said that if the prosecutors or police would have asked for a stiffer penalty, he would have awarded it."

Cathy Watts, the co-chair of biking advocacy group Saskatoon Cycles, thinks there's even more to Palibroda's video diaries than that.

"He, I think, feels he has just as much legitimacy out there as all the rest of us do," said Watts. "So he's just documenting it. He's telling the story of what it's like."

'I wouldn't recommend everybody do it'

After the silver SUV passed Palibroda on Monday, Palibroda speedily biked up two blocks to catch up with the vehicle, which turned onto a side street and stopped by the side of the road.

"I wouldn't recommend everybody do it because you can get yourself in a dangerous situation," said Palibroda.

"But again, I was just trying to educate."

The video — which Palibroda Tweeted out , complete with electronic score and opening title cards — shows him biking to the side of the vehicle as the driver emerged from inside.

This is the exchange captured on the video:

Judge tosses evidence from collision investigator in fatal cyclist crash

  Judge tosses evidence from collision investigator in fatal cyclist crash In a major blow to the Crown's case, a judge has tossed out most evidence from an Ottawa police collision investigator who testified that the driver of the large truck that struck and killed Nusrat Jahan would have clearly seen the cyclist before he turned right. It comes after Det.-Const. Alain Boucher's re-enactment of the crash — recorded two months after it happened and played in court earlier in the trial — was revealed to contain several major errors.

Palibroda: "I just want you to know, sir — "

Man: "Move over, you idiot."

Palibroda: "I'm legally biking where I should be. I have a sheet here."

Palibroda said he was trying to reach into his backpack to produce the City of Saskatoon's 2018 cycling guide. The guide includes a diagram that Palibroda says illustrates his legal right to ride in the middle of a road lane.

A city spokesperson said Wednesday "the graphic depicts a bike travelling in a straight line. The bylaw is the authority on cyclist position."

The law in question, Bylaw 6884, says bikes should be "as close as is reasonably practicable to the right-hand curb."

The parking spots by the curb of Broadway Avenue means riding in the middle of the lane there is safest, said Palibroda.

"I just basically wanted to say, 'Hey, I was doing what I should do. No need to get so angry,' you know. There was no inconvenience. Didn't slow him down."

Named the Healing Camp For Justice, the camp is reminiscent of a similar camp in Regina, where 14 teepees have been raised near the Saskatchewan Legislature.

The cycling guide never came out, however, as seen on the video.

Man: "You need to pull over."

Palibroda: "I have a cycling guide for you, sir. Calm down, sir. I just want to educate you on the rules of the road. Please." 

'You wanna fight?'

The driver accused Palibroda of attacking his car and repeatedly swore at him, telling him to get off the road before finally getting back into his vehicle.

While pulling out, the driver rolled down his window and offered Palibroda an invitation.

Man: "You wanna fight?"

Palibroda: "No, I just want to educate you."

Man: "Then get off the road."

Palibroda: "OK, take care."

Man: "Kill yourself."

Palibroda said he was not playing "gotcha."

"I'm just trying to live my life and bike down the road," he said. "And if somebody happens to do something, that's their fault. I'm not trying to catch anybody."

CBC News has attempted to reach out to the driver so that he can tell his side of the story.

The Saskatoon Police Service, which enforces the city's bylaws, has been asked to weigh in on whether Palibroda was legally in the right or not.

As for Watts of Saskatoon Cycles, she said she believes attitudes toward cyclists have improved in the last few years.

Still, she added, "there is a few of those people out there who feel they own the road."
