H&R and Day & Ross both have yards in Winnipeg so good chance you will meet up and its not called a car park but a "parking lot" you will need to learn new lingo.Slippy do you have an idea when you coming over ,are you based out of Winnipeg?

In your third post you never mentioned C&J , just NB and Day and Ross , enough to set alarm bells ringing in their own right let alone combined
To this day I'll never forget the Taliban D and R driver who undertook me using the shoulder on a 2 lane section of the yellowhead , yee bloody haw !

a D&R truck on your bumper on hwy16 or worse on 11 or 17 in ON. is enough for any driver to be woried about, when the $$$ is going to try to overtake and ditch ya.
I would rather be pulled by the DOT every day than have to run anywhere near a D&R truck, no joking!

So what are you implying? D&R drivers are pushed past the limit or they take any old driver who can point the truck in the right direction or what? Not trying to wind anybody up but I'm not going to know anything about them till I get over there and doing the job..

I was told D&Rs own trucks are ran on elogs.they are owned by mc cain foods.so no prob BUT a lot of their smaller contractors and o/os drive like madmen!!balls to the wind,,they would try to get past you anytime any place. just my look at things

The standard of their drivers leaves a lot to be desired , akin to the muppets that run out of Surrey BC . Most cannot drive a truck period , the one and only time I've seen a semi doing a 180 backwards into the rhubarb it was good old D and R . Fortunately for other road users they can be easily spotted in advance , if not by the colors then the beaten state of the trucks with bits either hanging off or missing all together .
As Jimmy has already posted , coming over the top from Toronto to the Peg the last thing you want is a suicide driver from D&R in your mirrors , nightmare the lot of them . I'll pull over and help most guys , but these idiots can stay in the ditch and freeze for all I care .
Don't get me started
