Toronto NDP MP Olivia Chow met on Monday with the family of a cyclist killed earlier this month to push for a law that would require side guards on large trucks.
The issue made headlines earlier this month when 38-year-old Jenna Morrison died after she was clipped by a truck and pushed under the back wheels on Dundas Street West at Sterling Road.
Her death triggered an outpouring of grief from Toronto cyclists, who held a memorial ride in her honour.
Anyone have any evidence that cyclists are more dangerous now than ever before? Every time a cyclist gets hit by a car it's like they were a saint. Remember that lunatic Darcy Sheppard that decided to attack former Ontario Attorney General Michael Bryant and ended up getting run over. He was treated like a saint by the cyclist movement.
We're constantly reminded that murder rates are down so extra efforts for crime and punishment is fear mongering. Double standard?
