Someone to talk to CHEK news about dooring penalties?

Off the top of my head I can't think who in the club has experienced dooring first hand, but I'm sure more than one person has. CHEK news is looking to discuss penalties on drivers who accidentally knock cyclists down by opening their door. BC is considering raising the penalty, which is currently just $81. Ontario recently raised the penalty to $365.

They'd like to interview someone with first-hand experience. There's a short fuse on this, as they want to do an interview early this afternoon. PM me if you have info. Thanks!
