I don't see how searching your person comes into play here...

If the peace officer is writing you up for an offence and you fail to provide an ID and they require it to write up the ticket, then you can be charged with obstruction because you're hindering the officer's ability to perform his duties.

I've encountered machines not working countless times on Skytrain (I commute to work). I don't ever recall a transit officer saying I could ride for free, but I have been told several times to get a ticket at the next stop. I stopped asking anymore since it's something I just expect to do. The only time I remember being told to ride all the way is when there was a system-wide debit/credit card failure and machines took cash only.

And why complain about the time it takes to get off the train to get a ticket? It literally only takes a minute and by the time you get back up the next train is probably just pulling in. Even on the Millenium Line (down Lougheed) the worst case wait between trains is only 6 minutes. That's too much of an inconvenience?

I'd bet $$$ that if you had the bad luck of running into transit police at the next stop and told them the previous stop machines were broken they wouldn't have said a damn thing. As soon as they catch you several stops away they're going to have a different attitude.
