Sorry I can't help with the CA mods. I'm not into making my Ebikes street-illegal.
Toronto is waking up to the realization there are electrified bicycles amongst the cyclists and they aren't too happy about it.
EScooter enthusiasts refer to their scooters as "EBikes" and the public is unaware of the difference between 'electrically assisted bicycles' and 'electric scooters'.
EScooters illicit huge negative responses from drivers and cyclists, both and there is a crackdown beginning to make it's presence known around town.
An electrically assisted bicycle, that travels at bicycling speeds, can share bicycle paths, bicycle lanes, bicycle racks on buses and all other bicycling infrastructure and not even be noticed.
Making them faster will incur the wrath of cyclists and electrically assisted bicycles will be penalized by continuing to be classed in the same category as electric scooters, and restricted to motor vehicle routes.
I'm old enough to have experienced the moped craze of the 1960's and remember only too well the restrictive legislation that was introduced that made mopeds basically extinct.
I don't want the same thing to happen to electrically assisted bicycles.
