CALGARY, AB: The Western Canadian Wheat Growers would like to acknowledge and thank our long and short-haul truckers for the vitally important work that they are doing under the current difficult circumstances. Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 regulations in place, many facilities are denying drivers access to bathroom facilities.
“All Canadians are relying on these modern-day heroes to move the food and products that we need in our hospitals, grocery stores and fuel stations,” said Stephen Vandervalk, AB Director.
During these challenging times, it is imperative that these men and women get all the credit and support that they deserve. They are hauling the seed, fertilizer, machine parts for grain farmers and a multitude of other products that Canadian consumers rely on for daily life.
“My hat’s off to the long hours that these drivers put in every day and ask that the loading facilities support them accordingly,” closed Daryl Fransoo, SK Director.
