    Why is it harassment when drivers blabber at someone crossing their line but it is OK when the government forces them back to work or the port authority threatens them with them losing their licence.
    Harassment is when they damage the trucks of the drivers that cross their line, You have to remember all those drivers know each other, they know where they live, where they park their truck. They know where the containers are going and can get at them there. They have enough knowledge to damage the truck and cost the outfit money, The drivers on the line are trying to protect their income, the government knew of the problem for over a year and all of a sudden the provincial government needs 90 days to what? They did nothing, why would the guys on the line believe they are going to do anything other than threaten them and try and out bully the port which has tried that tactic for more than a year.
    The government should do what they are good at, give money to the oil companies and the aluminum smelter at Kitimat they are in the same group as the government, a lieing pile of it.
    Just a thought!

    Why protect this guy’s identity? Do strikers truly believe they will win any points at the bargaining table by using threats and violence? Strikers never win points by pissing people off.

    Is it just me or is it true that truck news has sided where the advertising money is…with the port.
    I thought truck news was smarter tthan that and cared about its readers…maybe not.

    Wade,

    Thanks for your comment.

    TruckNews.com has been the only Canadian trucking publication to get exclusive interviews with representatives of both Unifor and UTA. We’ve given more coverage to the truckers’ grievances than any other industry publication. See http://www.trucknews.com/news/truckers-reject-port-metro-vancouver-deal/1002952578/ for just one example of interviews with the people representing the striking drivers.

    As for following the advertising dollars, that’s not something our journalists do. They follow the stories. Sometimes that means reporting on actions of individuals representing one side of an issue. Sometimes it means covering the actions of individuals on the other side.

    And just to clarify one of your concerns, if you take a look at the TruckNews.com website or in the magazines, I don’t think you’ll see that Port Metro Vancouver has any ads running. And neither do Unifor or the UTA.

Have your say:
