OTA holds safety talks with Transport Minister, insurance reps


TORONTO, Ont. – The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) says it has recently had productive meetings to address truck safety in the province.

OTA chairman David Carruth and vice-chairman Wendell Erb recently joined OTA president Stephen Laskowski in meeting with the insurance industry. The topic was enforcement of writable electronic logging devices (ELDs) and the review of facility insurance.

“The group was very engaged and had positive discussions on ways the trucking and insurance industry could cooperate on improving enforcement of writable ELD devices pre- and post- federal regulation. Equally interesting was the discussions on exploring potential policy changes dealing with facility insurance and how it is currently utilized in the marketplace,” said Erb.

The OTA also recently met with Ontario Transport Minister Jeff Yurek, to brief him on the association’s truck safety vision and how the province can reduce red tape in the trucking industry.

“Minister Yurek was engaged in our issues and we look forward to working with him in helping make Ontario’s roads safer while also reducing red tape in our sector for the majority of compliant carriers,” said Carruth.

    I would like to bring your attention to this quoted phrase from the article above . And I would like you to think about this very wisely …

    ” The group was very engaged and had positive discussions on ways the trucking and insurance industry could COOPERATE on improving ENFORCEMENT”

    I will repeat this once again : The trucking industry and the insurance industry have been compromised ! And they are working together !

    This can change for the betterment of humanity . But first we need to wake up and unite ! Division is our weakness ! How ? Listen to the truck drivers who are not unionized ! Be a friend and make a friend ………….. Unfortunately most unions have been compromised as well ………
