Driver and company should receive massive fines.
The driver's failure to properly secure the load that he had full responsibility for caused significant inconvenience, loss of revenue and additional costs to thousands of drivers.

Lazy, incompetent drivers and their owners should hurt, feel serious financial pain as a consequence for their actions or lack of.

BUMP

Here's a thought. Maybe a good start with commercial driver training is one
has to be a Canadian citizen for "X" amount of years.
Maybe 5 years ? My initial thought was 10yrs.

Time to get a grip and climatized, maybe learn the language, the laws n' such.

No way should someone who just landed on this soil from wherever else
on the planet be gifted a license to operate combination vehicles up to,
and at times exceeding 63.5 Mt. (140,000lbs)

Having Canadian Transport company recruiters scouring the planet to find
their next batch of seat warmers should be criminal.

No different than the history of coal mines or rail road construction of a
Century, or so, ago.

Meh, more where they came from, get another.

What a :cuss: bad joke !
