    only problem with that is i really like my teacher, and if i sue the school and the kid the teacher might get fired, i would rather suck it up then hurt my teacher, plus our bikes are clearly illegal(at least in ontario) and i dont want to bring attention to it,

    Law suit need only say bicycle, you, bag of books and him. Dunno, but that kid is a freak and needs a "talkin'" to.

    I don't know about Canada, but in the states that is attempted manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon.

    You meant clearly "not legal" as opposed to clearly "illegal" right ;) Don't get me going on that topic...lol Anyway motor added to your bicycle or not the courts and the police won't likely give a damn and besides you were on private property so the Ontario HTA rules and regs do not apply anyway.


    As I said in my PM if the kid is 18 or under go after the parents! It's understandable you don't want to go after the school but don't let this little knob get away with this kinda crap!

    Have a look at the Ontario Parental Responsibility Act, it is the act that is most relevant in your case. Clearly if things happened as you say they did you are entitled to compensation under this act and I would imagine the only arguing in the courtroom would be in regards to how much $$$ your entitled to recover. Pain and suffering, lost wages, damage to bicycle....I'd say 25g plus lawyers fees and costs would not be out of reach by any means.

    thanks for the support guys, this kid is a huge jock, he plays football, so if i were to plot revenge it would end in suffering for me, i am looking into a lawyer though,

    It's ok you don't have to do it teach him a lesson if anything he's gonna get a slap on the wrist you gotta teach him a lesson I use train Muay Thai and I fought guys twice my size and won of course don't fight him just figure something out because that will cause more trouble.

    but say i do fight him, i have support, all 20 of my classmates want revenge, but i dont think hurting him will accomplish anything, it will just get us charged and make it hard to get jobs and leave the country, im not a complete hippy saying violence never wins, but in this situation i dont think revenge is a good idea,
