Canadian truckers who have stood their ground at the U.S.-Canada border — both physically and philosophically — have enthusiastic support from some big-rig drivers here in our country even as the police push in.
Long and short-haul truckers rolling through cities and towns in both countries perform a “sometimes dangerous, often hard” job. They deserve everyone’s respect, two trucking company employees told Fox News Digital in separate phone interviews this week.
John Brubaker, 62, of Hampton, Iowa, is a transportation supervisor for a Tennessee-based trucking company. A father and grandfather, Brubaker worked behind the wheel of a big rig for over a decade before transferring to a supervisory role.
“It’s dead wrong for Canadian leaders to use emergency powers to impact these truckers,” he told Fox News Digital in a phone interview. “It shows no respect for the enormous role truckers play in the economy — and it’s dictatorial.”
