 The Province of Ontario on November 8, 2019 announced a visionary, two-year comprehensive blueprint which will lead the trucking industry through a series of consultations that will make highways safer by introducing modern techniques and approaches that expand the perspective and reach of enforcement to deal with non-compliant carriers, including Driver Inc. operators. The Action Plan, which outlined the process for this consultation, also included additional significant measures previously introduced in a Red Tape Bill by Prabmeet Singh Sarkaria, Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction, such as the introduction of an integrated vehicle safety and emissions inspection program and long combination vehicle enhancements.
