Alberta, Ontario vote against common sense in favour of a dangerous doctrine - 2019-10-14
"Spare us from government oversight of meticulous truck driver training and licensing!" Crash victims do not cry this out as they sit in their own blood in the eerie silence post-smash on the flat highways of the West.
"No taxpayer dollars for me," they don't tell horrified police officers wet with the surrounding carnage. The injured just beg for help, sometimes mutely with their eyes.
But eccentric Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, chief doctrinaire of the province's United Conservative Party, will swear these are the wails he heard. Strange that other premiers didn't. Kenney has decided to revert to old trucking rules, which may make accidents again more likely.
