Atowing company CEO plans to ignore Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s order for towing companies to disrupt truckers protesting vaccine mandates.
Trudeau, who invoked emergency powers for the first time in 50 years, has faced a fierce backlash over his directives, which include towing companies forcing their employees to remove trucker’s rigs or face loss of federal contracts and other penalties.
So far, there is little evidence that towing companies are complying with Trudeau’s orders.
In an interview with Newsweek, Ibrahim Masir, CEO of Alliance Towing in Ottawa, Canada, said the government has put small businesses in a terrible position. He described it as a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” spot.
“It’s a position that no small business wants to be in and we’re here because of the government measures.”
