Truck drivers travelling across the country in the pandemic may be allowed to cross the border, but good luck trying to find a decent meal or even an open bathroom. That's what Lethbridge resident Lena Derksen heard when she would ask her truck driver brother how it was going. “My brother is a trucker, he drives and I got friends that drive, and just by what they have told me, there is no place for them to go to the bathroom or get a good meal,” said Derksen, who decided that was no way to treat the people keeping the shelves stocked across the country during a harrowing time for the planet.
