For Breadalbane, rather than hope upon hope for Provincial dictates allowing cyclists to yield at stop signs (not a hill worth dying on IMO), treat it through a traffic calming lens (which by the by helps increase the comfort of the roadway for cyclists and is a key ingredient in successful greenways elsewhere). Simply remove the stop signs in favour of physical speed reduction devices like speed humps midblock, and small neighbourhood-scale traffic circles at the intersections in question. Designed properly, cyclists can navigate these without slowing down appreciably, and cars are forced to operate at the intended speed for the road.
