Stafford - Electronics, Diapers & Coffee... OH MY! - Tue, Oct 22nd 2013 by AM640 published on 2013/10/22 16:16:31 +0000 On a cool weekend earlier this fall, someone sneaked into a gated truck yard west of Hamilton and drove off with a tractor trailer, stealing its load of 18 tonnes of frozen beef from Texas. The theft generated some brief news items and social-media jokes about barbecue maniacs needing Flintstone-style servings of meat. But the reality is that there is no shortage of people willing to buy discounted meat from a dubious source. Or electronics. Or liquor and tobacco. Or even diapers. Is Canada’s transportation industry too vulnerable? If you’re a trucker, have you ever had any experience with truck cargo theft? Many callers, including Toronto Councillor Mark Grimes who operates a transportation company, called in to share their experiences.
