OTTAWA -- Who says carriers, owner-ops, and unions can't all work together to get something done in trucking?

Thanks to ongoing lobbying efforts by the Canadian Trucking Alliance, the Owner-Operators Business Association of Canada (OBAC) and the Teamsters, the Conservative government has reportedly announced in the federal budget it will restore the meal deduction claims limit to 80 percent for truck drivers.

According to a report at 4:00 pm on Toronto news radio station CFRB, the budget being read today by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty includes the much sought-after tax amendment. There are no further details on possible implementation dates at this point.
