Notice from West Coast Trucking Association
“Dear trucker brothers,
“Our brothers are losing their lives every day on the icy highways which are totally neglected by the authorities with regards to cleaning and deicing.
“We are planning to hold a rally from Surrey, BC to Downtown Vancouver to show our protest in regards with the condition of these highways. […]
“It’s a humble request to all the truckers that we should get together and participate in this protest so that the government can take us more seriously so that we shall stop losing our lives on these highways.”
The truckers held a planning meeting for this rally at Gurudwara Dashmesh Darbar in Surrey on Saturday, January 15 to which all truckers were invited. They decided to hold the rally on Saturday, January 22. Truckers are asked to meet at the Gurudwara Dashmesh Darbar in Surrey at 11:00 am. A cavalcade of trucks will travel to Vancouver ending at 4:00 pm.
