CTA, Border Vaccine Mandate take Media Centre Stage

Canadian Trucking Alliance staff fielded well over 100 media inquiries and interviews over the last week in anticipation of the cross-border mandate coming into effect Jan. 15.

CTA was asked by dozens of national and local media outlets for clarity on the government’s procedure for rolling out the mandate as well as commentary on the impact the mandatory policy would have on cross border trucking, the driver shortage, the fragile North American supply chain and the economy.

Below is a sample of a few major articles and broadcasts:
