Will The Government Support The Trucking Industry Through Economic Turmoil?
The governments of Ontario and Canada as a whole have taken quite a few measures in support of the trucking industry. Some of these supports include classifying trucking as an “essential service” so they can keep driving, reducing weight and municipal by-law restrictions, and allowing goods to continue moving over the border with the United States.
All this is to keep the delivery of goods going round-the-clock to all corners of the country. However, more can and should be done to help drivers and the industry as a whole.
