The City of Calgary continues to look into better ways of ensuring pedestrian safety.

Roughly 60 people gathered at the Red and White Club Thursday evening, including many police officers, to discuss ideas on how to make roads safer for those using their feet to get around.

Councillor Druh Farrell said 10 pedestrians were killed on city streets last year.

“We should be saying it’s unacceptable, and doing whatever we can to change things. And I think what we’re seeing tonight is people want a change and they want to do better, and they want us to do better,” Farrell said.

She said the city wants feedback on what people experience when they walk around the city, in hopes that can lead to solutions to improving safety.
