Three days after a truck driver was charged in the death of an Ottawa cyclist, the head of the Greater Ottawa Truckers Association is defending truck drivers and says bikes shouldn't have been made equal to trucks on the road.

Ron Barr, president of the Greater Ottawa Truckers Association, was a guest on CBC Radio's Ottawa Morning on Monday.

He told host Robyn Bresnahan he questions the severity of the charges laid against Steven Conley after a crash on Laurier Avenue in downtown Ottawa claimed the life of 23-year-old Nusrat Jahan on Sept. 1.
