There are two very good reasons for that.

One, less than 5% of US CDL holders have a valid passport and drive into Canada. Most drivers are more focused on the mandates that will affect them.

Two, the January 15th mandate is Canadian. While the US mandates will likely be overturned because they're unconstitutional the US Constitution doesn't apply in Canada. They're a sovereign state and Her Majesty (Fun fact: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of Canada and Head of State, NOT Justin Trudeau) can pretty much do whatever she wants with mandates.

While the US mandate requiring drivers entering the US to be vaccinated by 22 January 2022 is likely to be overturned it doesn't really matter for you. If you can't get into Canada without a shot it does you no good to be able to re-enter the US without one.

Oh, I'm sorry to bring up a mandate (which I stated is a Canadian mandate), that is going to cause hundreds of American drivers in just my one local American city to lose their jobs. Sure, cross border drivers are uncommon (at least in areas not near the border), but I didn't know we couldn't talk about a vaccine mandate that is actually going into effect and is actually going to affect American drivers, unlike the vaccine mandates this country is currently working towards. US drivers aren't losing their jobs due to American mandates yet, US drivers ARE losing jobs due to a Canadian mandate. Not sure why I got such a douchy answer from you-there are 75 drivers just in my company that will be affected by this and are wrestling with what to do. Sorry I bothered you.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Andhe78,

Just get your covid-19 vaccinations. It's really not a big deal. I dunno what it is about truck drivers and their tinfoil hats. They act like the people getting the vaccines are sheep, yet they all baah the same nonsense.

.......aaaand that will be all from Chris. Things got much nicer around here when we got rid of Kerry, so we'll complete our clean sweep of the woke crowd so we can move on.

Best of luck Chris. You're gonna need it. Your woke agenda might be an easy sell to elementary school kids, but as you can see, thinking adults with real-life experience and wisdom see right through your garbage.

Just get your covid-19 vaccinations. It's really not a big deal.

There are over 100,000 deaths globally from the vaccine. Why don't you go knock on the door of a widow who just lost her husband or parents who just lost their child to the vax and let them know you don't think it's a big deal.

You know what's not a big deal? A virus with a 99.8% recovery rate.

That's an excellent move, Brett. IMO, he was only here to Troll: stir up crap and post comments contrary to the majority.

Real or unreal views aside, I hope an actual person such as that does not end up behind a truck's steering wheel.

No sheep here. A Pandemic does not need 24/7 advertising and reminders that it exists. It does not require marketing campaigns and endless propaganda but people who hold certain agendas do. I’ve got plenty of vaccinations in my life. You know the ones that actually make sense, have been deemed safe, and actually protect you against a virus.

In case anyone thinks, "Brett bans anyone who disagrees with him," that's not true. I ban people who cause grief around here or make statements that I believe will cause harm.

After banning Chris, he signed up again and posted a statement that asked where I got those numbers from because, as far as he could tell, there had only been 3 deaths from the vaccine. The data is available for anyone to see. His ignorance is dangerous. That's why he's gone.

Here are the stats for the United States alone, and they estimate these numbers to be 4 to 5 times less than reality because of under-reporting. Keep in mind, also, that this system is maintained by the FDA and the CDC, both of whom are desperately trying to sell vaccines, so imagine what the real numbers would be if reported by someone without a conflict of interest:

Established in 1990, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national early warning system to detect possible safety problems in U.S.-licensed vaccines. VAERS is co-managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • 983,756 Adverse Events
  • 108,572 Hospitalizations
  • 107,860 Urgent Care
  • 12,317 Bell's Palsy
  • 10,429 Heart Attacks
  • 20,560 Myocarditis
  • 34,615 Permanently Disabled
  • 20,622 Deaths

"100% Safe And Effective" they say.

Here is the link to the data:

Vaers COVID data

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I for one (im sure most of us as well) have no problem listening to others points of view. That is yet another form of knowledge and research on how I learn, both the right and wrong about any subject. What bothers me is when someone like him posts pure nonsensical BS, claims it as fact and refuses to budge even when presented with facts and data to back it up, failing to have any data to back up his own view. Your feelings are not facts. Just because you feel some kind of way about something doesn't make it right. I had had enough of several of the more recent posters. Good riddance to him and I agree, hope like hell I never have to deal with him in a truck.

Something I heard a couple weeks ago on the radio was the quarterly profits for Big Pharma. The numbers were astronomical. One company was reporting nearly 20 BILLION, just for a quarter.

Who makes huge campaign contributions to the politicians? Who makes the choices on which drugs are implemented? One hand washes the other. They do not want the Covid scamdemic to ever end.

On WHO's Youtube channel they have a video stating that due to companies concentrating on the Covid vaccine, there has been a reduction of TB vaccine production. The result? Tuberculosis jumped from the #8 to #3 spot for cause of deaths in lower income countries.

The number of deaths has grown considerably for the first time in a decade. Poor countries, you know the ones woke people are supposed to care about. But who cares as long as the rest of the world has peace of mind from a 3 percent chance of death. TB has a 7 to 35 percent chance of death depending on the country and access to health care. Care that has been diminished due to covid.

Poor countries, you know the ones woke people are supposed to care about.

The same people who supposedly care so much about our health these past two years have allowed this to happen their entire lives:

Around 9 million people die every year of hunger and hunger-related diseases. This is more than from AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

....all they had to do was write a check and fix the problem, but they never did. Why do they suddenly care so deeply about our health now?

How many people die of hunger each year?
