SARNIA, Ont. — Truckers who were stranded along Hwy. 402 for up to 24 hours were visited by Salvation Army and Red Cross volunteers bearing gifts of food and drinks.
The lineup of trucks grew to 36 kilometres on Hwy. 402 yesterday as U.S. Customs officers questioned every U.S.-bound traveller.
Truckers who were stranded in their rigs were appreciative of the gifts from volunteers.
"We are lucky that so many people are so kind," trucker Jean Paul Chagnon told local media as he patiently waited to cross the border with a load of Bombardier snowmobiles.
Ontario Provincial Police say that border officials were allowing about 30 trucks an hour cross the border.
