Truck side guards should be mandatory: Olivia Chow

The NDP transportation critic has renewed her calls for the federal government to implement a private members bill she introduced in the House of Commons to make side guards mandatory on heavy trucks in Canada.

It follows the deaths of several cyclists who died beneath the wheels of big trucks in Toronto and elsewhere.

Cambridge, Ont.-based Shu-Pak Equipment Inc. says it will now install the guards on all new trucks it manufactures.

Standing next to family members of a Toronto cyclist who was killed by a truck, Chow thanked Shu-Paks president David Tanner for making the move voluntarily.
