Truth like the quote below :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Talking from first hand expereince i worked for westcan for 20 months no incidents accidents even went the extra mile to help out and pull them out of the sh#t. The equipment is low quality trucks macks and internationals which break down regulary( and it is not much fun being broke down in the midle of no where for 6 hours waiting for someone to come out 2 hours from you when you have no night heater and no heat from the engine as it has packed up in - 30 outside) If you are prepared to run bent they claim to be straight but it is far from the truth if they are busy they encourage it and if they are quite they will take your bonus off you it a bit of a no win suitation. There are a handful of brits who have been there for 5 years or so (you get a gold ring with 3 rubys for that) so it is posssibble if you kiss ass to get some time served in there but if you face dosnt fit and you drop one bollock you can be terminated there and then as i was and 19 others like me in a matter of a couple of months. So be aware westcan is a ticket in to Canada ,but if you lose your job you can be up a creek with out a paddle as its not like the UK where you can go find another job or work agencies or what ever you have to have a employer with a LMO and they are far and few between. Also the woman who applies for PR and work permits etc is a Brit i am not going to name individuals but it would be a kindness if i described her as a bitch enough said. I wish any one giving it a shot out here the best but beleive me it isn't a easy ride but i wish you all the luck and hope it works for you after all it got to be better than Britain that is sinking quicker that the titantic.

Oh I do love it when drivers "Think" they saved the day:rofl::rofl: Macks and Internationals low quality, please show me High quality trucks then:blink:
Its no fun being broke down any where, but its the drivers fault if he does not carry emergency provisions in -30 temps on such trips so dont whinge. So only arss kissers stay for 5 years or more ??? idiot statement that. So you got sacked for dropping a bollock, what did you expect a pat on the back:rofl:
So the woman is a bitch, what does that make you a whinging whimp. grow a pair and move on.

You know what they say when the wind blows in SK (which it always does), Simon?

No matter what way the wind is blowing it just proves that SK simply sucks!!!
:rofl::rofl::rofl:

And sorry, Kev, but we none of us roasted anyone for not moving province. That was only suggested by you after we said it was offered and that gaining residency here in MB is more straightforward.

We all know the score in AB.. Didn't Lyndon get a load of flak about it once, or twice.......?

KB33,

Anyone who dares to disagree with you gets insults:sneaky: You drag up long forgotten stuff that has no relevance to the topic in question in a vain attempt to 'win'. Can you not accept that people will have a different point of view from yours every once in a while? This whole having an opinion thing is not black or white you know, there is no right or wrong, just different ways of looking at things;)

It brings to mind a character from the Fast Show, the Dad that had to win the games he played with his kids or he would throw a tantrum :rolleyes:

FYI, there is no Steinbach Mafia, only one of us (me) lives in town, the others all live in surrounding towns, so, strictly speaking, it's the Manitoba Mafia and we would like to be referred to in the correct manner in all future correspondence please, or we may be forced to make you an offer you can't refuse:p
