The next time you find yourself driving down any dirt road on the Prairies, take a look into the first (inhabited) farm yard you pass. And the next one. And the one after that.
Chances are beyond the wind-whipped, tarp-covered shelter, the stock-piled ancient equipment and the friendly farm dog, you’ll notice a big rig. Apparently just sitting there. Maybe still covered with remnants of the last snowfall. Why is that? Why is that truck just sitting there? It’s costing someone money. Could or should it not be put to better use — for something other than a farmyard ornament? I suppose there may be a few things to consider first.
