Dear Prime Minister, and Marc Garneau (At Transport Canada),

While most of us in Canada are doing our best to stay home to stop the spread of Coronavirus, as we all know there are still many of us employed in the essential services lines of business who still go to work to help provide health care, food, medication and other basic essentials for all of us.

A number of these extremely important yet grossly undervalued professionals are truck drivers!

A very close friend of mine who in some ways is like a father to me is a truck driver. He's in his 60's and obviously more at risk of having fatal consequences if he contracts Covid 19. Like most of us he can't afford to stay home during this global pandemic (although many of us now have no choice but to stay home, and hope for the best with promises of assistance from the government, and of course to help stop the spread of the virus), so even though he's worried about his health and safety he has continued to go to work. In fact he left for work early this morning.

Without people like him we would not have the luxury of the endless conveniences that we still have access to to on a daily basis, especially at a time like this.

With the increase in closures of more and more businesses all over Canada which includes those located outside the cities where truck drivers stop for the most basic needs such as washroom and shower use, and to buy food, obviously the quality of their daily work life and their health is going to suffer. This could very well result in more sickness and injuries, inevitably resulting in less drivers being available to transport much needed goods.

WE NEED OUR TRUCK DRIVERS TO KEEP GOING STRONG NOW MORE THAN EVER!

So, please take the time to put in financial and other measures necessary such as making sure the currently existing amenities on the roads stay open and available, installing temporary/portable washrooms and shower facilities, and more food vendors, and complimentary masks and gloves to support and protect our valued brothers and sisters who are truck drivers, to  ensure that while hey are on the road they have adequate and convenient access to basic human needs!

Thank you for your time and your consideration, and we hope to see a lot more support for our Canadian truck drivers as soon as possible. Because without them we would all suffer a lot with the lack of supplies in both basic and urgently needed goods!

Thank you!!!
