Calls For The Government To Revisit Safety Program Devised For Semi Drivers

Calls For The Government To Revisit Safety Program Devised For Semi Drivers

Every year, Canada sees around 2,000 deaths related to highway incidents in the country and trucking experts believe that these can be avoided yet the federal government is not putting into action the solution that has been devised beforehand. According to Andy Roberts who is a veteran driving instructor, the perfect solution that will benefit Canadian trucking companies has already been developed but it is only gathering dust. He added that the proposal will not cost a fortune for the industry.

The problem stems from the fact that around 300,000 of the semi drivers working in Canada did not receive national training standards. There has been a curriculum put in place many years ago which was funded by the federal government called the Earning Your Wheels program. This is semi-driving course which lasts for three months. Experts in the industry believed that it is of gold standard.

The course is helpful because truck drivers will be prepared for any condition such as snow and ice, multi-lane freeways and even mountain roads. They will know how to secure as well as haul the loads if it is massive such as logs and dangerous chemicals.

Based on the report, a funding has already been provided by the federal government many years ago but no one is able to benefit from it. Furthermore, no one is allowed to make use of it. Roberts who is a master trainer said that the curriculum is just kept somewhere to gather dust where it is dormant.

The program can be traced back to the late 90s when, according to Pro Trucker Magazine and Roberts, there were a lot of concern regarding the lack of program for truckers that will provide national and uniform standard of training. White said that when the program was developed, it has received a lot of support thinking it would be made mandatory but none of it came to be.

Conference Board of Canada is actually all praise for the program which used to be offered by trucking schools for over a decade. The only problem now is that it is not mandatory and the federal government has given each province free reign when it comes to training rules for new truckers under their jurisdiction.

Calgary Council Passes 4-Year Budget, Including A 3.45% Increase In Property Tax In 2019

Calgary’s city council recently passed its four-year budget, with a vote of nine in favor, five in opposition.

Councillor Peter Demong opposed the budget, saying that he couldn’t back it without the council getting a concrete idea on what programs and services they should be focusing on.

Part of the voting was regarding the motion of a 3.45% property tax hike in 2019, which went forward.

According to Mayor Naheed Nenshi, that increase amounts to about $5 every month for the average Calgary household, but the added funds would allow the city to improve and keep the streets safe and clean; hiring new public bus drivers, police officers, and the like.

Nenshi says that the council looked at the services that are being delivered and what the citizens of the city demand, and, for a mere five dollars, which he says is less than what the average house pays on cell phones, Calgary will get a lot.

During the final day to iron out all the details for the four-year budget, Nenshi presented his omnibus motion for capital funding for a variety of projects for the city, including calling on roofing in Calgary for fixes, upgrades to the city’s arenas, and the construction of new bike lanes and train cars, among others.

His proposal was to spend $43 million in capital funding, unallocated, over four years, was voted on, passing with a vote of eight to six.

Nenshi states that the target of the funds are small, but would greatly impact the quality of life in Calgary. Specifically, his funding request included:

  • $17.5m for the purchase of three new train cars for the LRT, bumping up an existing order to 15 for a discount;
  • $7.5m for urban forestry;
  • $6.5m for community association and social recreation group support; calling on roofing in Calgary for work, among others;
  • $6m for parks projects;
  • $5.5m for streets and pathways, like the Barley Belt’s pathway, and;
  • Other funding for the maintenance of recreational facilities in Calgary.

Coun. George Chahal, during the meeting, implored the administration to study their funding and financials in order to streamline itself so that residential and non-residential tax rates can be lowered; he feels that they can’t wait to deal with the issue or kick the can down the road, as business owners and families across Calgary are hurting and they need to streamline or trim the budget.

International Developers See Thailand As Worth Investing In

Looking back at the entire 2018, it has been a good year for the hospitality industry of Thailand because many investors, both local and global, are investing their money to construct more hotel rooms in the country in order to meet the current demand which continue to grow yearly. There are many hotels near in Pattaya that are being renovated to offer more room accommodations than before.

There is a reason behind the progress of the hotel industry and it all boil downs to the increase in number of domestic and international traveller’s. Based on the prediction made by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, foreign travellers will reach 40.3 million while local travellers will go around the country about 177 million times.

Based on the expectations of the Thai Hotels Association, the hospitality industry will remain strong in the country despite any political crisis that might arise in the coming 2019 elections because the global economy has been stable for a while now.

The challenge remains for hotel operators because their room prices are still the lowest compared to other big cities that are within the Southeast Asia. In a survey conducted at the end of quarter three, there are already 143 hotels in the country while there are 33,855rroos available.

Global companies are mostly responsible for the latest developments in the industry. For instance, this month of December saw that Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co which is based in Tokyo has made an announcement regarding their next project which is to launch a hotel in Chonburi which is 60 kilometres to the southeast part of Bangkok. This hotel will be available to the public by 2021.

Ratanakorn Asset, a local real estate company, in partnership with IHG said that they have already made a contract to construct eight additional properties in major destinations in Thailand including Pattaya, KohSamui, Phuket, Khao Lak and Rayong. This will no doubt add to the hotels near in Pattaya which will give locals and tourists more options if they want to visit the province. Unlike Bangkok, Pattaya is more laidback but will all the fun the metropolis has to offer.
