On Wednesday December 30th, truck drivers from across the province are participating in a day of action to appeal to MPPs and the Ontario government to support the livelihood of independent dump truck operators, who are a critical part of keeping the economy moving. Starting at 9am, truckers will begin by delivering letters to a number of MPP constituency offices, before gathering at Queen’s Park at 11am. Together from Queen’s Park, a convoy will drive to the Minister of Transportation – Hon. Caroline Mulroney’s constituency office. Truck drivers will be available to speak about the fear mongering by the Government to justify poor policy. They will be asking the Government to treat dump truck drivers fairly and make the same accommodations for them as they have for other categories of trucks. And finally, they’ll speak about the impact these Government changes have to their ability to earn a living, in addition to the consequences these changes have with respect to construction delays, shortages, and increased building costs. - For more information: Sarbjit Kaur Email:firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 416-274-5324
