Some good news:

In the midst of a charity hot stove event for his son’s Humboldt Broncos on Wednesday night, Tom Straschnitzki left the room to answer his phone.

It was Ryan calling from his bed in the Foothills Hospital’s spine unit with big news.

He moved his toes.

Tom and Michelle Straschnitzki have seen the best in people over the last three weeks as their son has worked to recover after being paralyzed in a crash between his hockey team's bus and a transport truck. On Monday, they also saw the worst.

Tom Straschnitzki said he woke up early and was alerted on Twitter that someone using Ryan's name had set up a fake account and was seeking money for a GoFundMe campaign.

GoFundMe shut it down right away when they were notified it was fake.

People who pray tend to be more involved with volunteering and helping in other ways. Just sayin'

Owner charged in bus crash

The owner of the Alberta trucking company involved in the fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash has been charged.

Alberta Transportation Minister Brian Mason says Sukhinder Singh of Adesh Deol Trucking Ltd. is charged with non-compliance with federal and provincial safety regulations over a six-month period.

Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured when a semi-trailer and the Broncos hockey bus collided in Saskatchewan last April.

Be safe on the roads. Now you know why there are so many semi accidents happening lately!

How an immigration scheme steers newcomers into Canadian trucking jobs – and puts lives at risk

Immigration consultants and trucking firms with sketchy safety records have found ways to exploit foreign job seekers, sometimes with tragic results when unprepared drivers are sent out on the road, a Globe investigation finds

Image


Mahan Singh sits at a friend's house in Toronto on a rare day when he is not driving an 18-wheeler truck. Mr. Singh, an Indian national, had never considered a trucking job until Canadian immigration consultants told him it could help on his path to permanent residency. But he says working conditions were unsafe under his first employer in B.C.

Mahan Singh remembers feeling terrified he would lose control on an icy highway and kill someone.

His new employer had sent the 26-year-old rookie driver out to navigate a semi-trailer through treacherous mountain passes. “There was no training,” says Mr. Singh, who had been in Canada as a visitor for just a few months when he got his first job here under a temporary work permit. “I was scared. I didn’t have any idea it would be like this.”

Mr. Singh, who comes from Amritsar, in northwestern India, had never experienced ice or snow. He’d never considered being a truck driver, either, but Canadian immigration consultants told him that getting experience in trucking could help him qualify for permanent residency. So, a year ago, he got a licence and found a company to work for in Surrey, B.C.

Mr. Singh says he had to give $10,000 in cash to GLT Transportation just to get hired, then put up with perilous working conditions for weeks on end. “I had two minor accidents in the first four months,” he says. “In my six-month driving period, I only was in Surrey eight to 10 days. Always, we sleep on the road.”

He has since found a better employer, but he is still appalled that a country like Canada allows reckless trucking companies to send nervous, unprepared newcomers like him out on the highway. “Everything is supposed to be by the rules in Canada,” he says, “but then, when I start work, I find out there are no rules.”

A Globe and Mail investigation has discovered that young foreign nationals like Mr. Singh are routinely steered into trucking by some immigration consultants, in collaboration with particular trucking firms. Both take cash payoffs from recruits in exchange for jobs – even though that practice is illegal.

That has spawned an entrenched, lucrative and dangerous immigration scheme, centred in Surrey, that is exploiting newcomers and putting lives at risk across the country.

In audio recordings obtained by The Globe, consultants told one international student a trucking job costs $35,000 to $55,000 – an astonishing sum for aspiring immigrants, who often borrow the money to pay the fee.

The novice drivers are often unable to decipher Canadian road signs or handle their trucks properly before being sent out on the roads. That inexperience has led to crashes and near misses, according to documented cases, as well as interviews with two dozen sources, including truck drivers, dispatchers, tow operators and industry representatives.

The immigration consultants engaging in this practise belong in prison. End of Story.

The way big rig drivers are licensed should also be under review. Paying a few grand to Taylor or some other outfit to get a class one, hardly seems right given that the lessons are for the most part driving around town where it's flat, then if successful in obtaining the class one, the driver is now legally allowed to drive snow and ice covered high altitude roads, something that's a far cry from driving around the valley bottom.

That this is even an issue defies logic, and again demonstrates just how rare common sense has actually become.

Did they ever identify the driver of the semi that killed the DD driver on the westside this past summer at a red light at 3 am in the morning?

I either missed it or they never identified him.....?
