Cons reject heavy-truck sideguard bill

Bastards as usual... NDP Transport critic Hoang Mai (Brossard - La Prairie on Mtl's South Shore) tabled the bill, intended to save the lives of pedestrians and cyclists who are now often dragged under heavy trucks. As you may recall, there were two shocking cases a short walk or ride from where I live: a cyclist killed while commuting to work in the railway viaduct between Petite-Patrie and the Plateau, on St-Denis, and two elderly pedestrians walking from their seniors' apartments building to Jean-Talon Market, one killed, the other seriously injured, at the corner of avenue de Chateaubriand and Bélanger.
