I know everyone will have different opinions on them, but Simon feels this one is more suited for him.
I just find it strange that 6-7 yrs down the road newbies are still going for the same " Old Companies" ??? do none of you try to find new blood to hire you... I know a Winnipeg driver that works for http://www.liquidsinmotion.com and earns bloody good money, and believe me there are plenty of jobs in Winnipeg as he was a Bison driver... Just so you know Winnipeg is 820 miles from Edmonton...

Totally agree with you gremmie that's why I'm coming over to Winnipeg in a year's time for a recce
Central location in Canada, close to American border, quicker to get pr, makes sense to me

I think you misunderstood, i was pointing out that there are 1000s of companies to choose from, not just Westcan, H&R etc. Thats why i added that some one i know who lives in WPG drives for a company in EDM..
Basically they should broaden their searches, think outside the box so to speak.

..... but there aren't 1000's of companies Gremmie , not for the newbies . How many companies in let's say MB or SK can hire foreign workers ? 10 or maybe 15 max .


( or are willing to etc )

All of them can, well if they fullfill the criteria. Some may just need a nudge, i know when i was researching that i explained to some Trucking companies what was needed and many were willing to do it.

Yeah you're right all of them can , but we all know how freakin lethargic Canadians can be when it comes to actually doing things .
I was certainly glad to come over to a company who'd already got Brits working here , managed to get the low down on what to expect etc . Not sure if driving for abc trucking from Russell MB would have been such a hassle free passage if you get my drift.
Got one drop on Sherwin tomorrow so will give you a blast when passing .

Fridge, hotbox and loads of foil trays from the dollar store for you to put yor left over meals in for him to heat up, mind you saying that, if he's working out of Edmonton terminal hell probably be home all the time!!!
