🇨🇦@COVID19Up: Ottawa’s city manager says all tow-truck companies on contract with the city have refused (https://www.cp24.com/news/tow-truck-companies-refuse-to-haul-away-large-trucks-gridlocking-ottawa-1.5773050) to haul away the big rigs that have gridlocked Ottawa’s downtown for the second week in a row.
The consensus seems to be that many of the companies don’t want to do the work because the heavy truck industry is such a large part of their livelihoods and they fear harming that part of their businesses. The city is reviewing the contracts to see what recourse it has in this unprecedented situation.
In the meantime, Ottawa’s mayor has reached out to other large Ontario cities to see if they can help, and the city is calling companies across Eastern Ontario.
