Com-Car owner-operator group will call it quits

| 1/21/2003

After struggling for the past several years, on Jan. 31, Com-Car Owner-Operators' Association will be a chapter in the history of Canadian owner-operators.

Several attempts to keep the association in business in recent months, including proposals to merge with other organizations, were not successful. In an interview with Today's Trucking, the group's current president, Joanne Joosse, acknowledged the association began a downhill slide almost three years ago with the death of her husband, Com-Car's longtime leader.

The association claims to have 1,700 members and offers a variety of business-related services and training. In the end, the financial support "just wasn't there," Joosse told Today's Trucking. "I've given it my best shot."
