A vaccine mandate is now in effect for cross-border truckers coming into Canada. Canadian truckers who are not fully vaccinated will have to show proof of a negative PCR test collected within 72 hours of arriving at the border and will need to quarantine after arrival, while unvaccinated American truck drivers will be denied entry.
If you thought the supply chain issues were going to work out, it looks like you may have been mistaken. A lot of drivers struggled to make it across the borders to their respective countries before the mandate took effect at midnight
“A few of them put in a 16-hour driving day, but they were not getting stranded down in the U.S.,” Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada CEO Shelley Walker said. “There is a shortage of PCR tests, and where do you go in a vehicle that’s 70 to 75 feet long?” While Canadian drivers will not be denied entry, those who do not follow the policy could face enforcement action or fines. Walker said truckers are planning a convoy to Ottawa in protest, according to a report by CTV News Vancouver.
“You are now looking at an already scarce pool of drivers. Now that pool has gotten a bit shorter. So what you would have to do is you have to re-optimize your trucking, where you would take the vaccinated drivers and hopefully get them across the border,” he said. “It’s a business trade-off because the disruption that a Covid outbreak can cause in a company is much higher than the fact that some of them will not be vaccinated.”
This is only going to get worse too. The United States is planning its own assault on the liberty of truck drivers and the supply chain. The U.S. will also tighten its border restrictions this coming Saturday. At that point, Canadian truckers will be denied entry to the States unless they’re fully vaccinated.
According to The Canadian Trucking Alliance, between 10 to 15 percent of cross-border drivers could be lost, during an already ongoing labor shortage for the industry.
Be ready. Things could start disappearing from the shelves much more quickly in the coming weeks.
This covid stupidity grows
more absurd by the day.
It’s in effect and so far, so good.
No supply problems developing from it on either side of the border.
I can remember the story of a man who jumped off the top of the Empire State building without a parachute. As he passed by each floor on the way down he was heard to say “So far So good”…
This is going to hurt the lib geese.
Just tell them you identify as a fully vaccinated transgender squirrel.
They hate squirrels as they are to smart. Go with RAT as your rodent indenity.
And meanwhile at the southern border, mexican trucks are coming in by the thousands.
Honk, honk, honk!
Kinda frightening running into a 18 wheeler on the highway and the driver could stroke out! Me thinks Canaduh is trying to cause food shortages in the grocery stores. Majority of truckers want no part of the shots.
Hard to believe majority the worlds governments are in on this scam for a bug that has less that a 1 percent chance of hospitalization and death. I do not care anymore living in a blue state I will work as long as I can. If the day comes that I cannot work due to the snake oil then I’m walking away from everything! Let’s go Brandon!

If that scares you, stay out of airplanes.
And things will only get worse with each hour that passes, so (if you have not already done so): Turn your eyes to Jesus- repent of your disbelief of what He did on the Cross in dying for your sins. Confess Jesus as your Saviour. Then understand that after you are born again, NOTHING else in this crazy world matters….except telling others of Jesus.
From the book of Romans: 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10:10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 10:11For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

From the King James Bible; The Gospel according to John:
3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 3:17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
In Albuquerque, NM some stores are already seeing bare shelves. One store chain has already stopped online curbside ordering. If your not all ready for this your going to be quite hungry.
