The city and the province's trucking association are discussing ways to improve safety in the wake of several deaths involving pedestrians, cyclists and heavy vehicles in recent weeks.
The first of several planned meetings took place on Wednesday.
Executive committee member Aref Salem said at the first meeting, there were several safety measures that were brought up.
"We talked about barriers. We talked about cameras. We talked about mirrors," he said, adding it's important to develop a plan thoroughly before it is implemented.
In the meantime, the city is looking at equipping its fleet of heavy vehicles with lateral barriers that would prevent people from slipping under and being crushed by trucks.
The next meeting between Salem and truckers' representatives is due to happen within the next few weeks.
