These idiots in Alberta were breaking two laws. The one about riding on freeways and the other way about riding side by side. So what is their argument? They want to make two across riding (taking about 5 feet of space plus the mandatory 3 feet buffer for cars) legal. Their argument? It makes cyclists more visible. Yes, that worked so well in this case.

The problem is that 5 + 3 ft is 8 feet. A motorist could not legally pass two cyclists riding together unless they went completely into the other lane. Not feasible in many urban areas.

Calls for legal side-by-side cycling after pickup truck crash hurts five

I don't know about the rest of you but they already have the run of the city here in Ottawa.
