  • I live in Whitby and I am a champion for events and businesses in Whitby.
    Why is it that I only heard about this after the event was over?
    I would have loved to attend, or tell others about it…. but I had no idea that it was happening.
    Shame on, the trucking industry and local Whitby/Durham media for not bringing awareness.
    We need to support our local business and grow Whitby/Durham.
    Really disappointed.

    • I am also a Whitby resident and I heard about this event on the local radio for over 2 weeks ahead of time. I think these Peterbilt guys did a great job getting the word out. I was there, the dealership did a great job and the Road Hammers rocked

  • John Doe, why are you so surprised. Don’t blame Trucker’s News. This is just a shining example of Of the lack of customer service at Peterbilt in Ontario…
