Several dozen trucks in New Brunswick, Canada, stopped along roadsides,
scales and at truck stops Tuesday, Sept. 6, to protest the rising cost of fuel.
While no specific numbers were available, the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police said trucks were stopped in the towns of Saint-Jacques, St. Leonard,
Grand Falls, Kedgwick and Saint-Quentin.
A police spokesperson told the Canadian
Press that, while other vehicles were not blocked, traffic along the
Tran-Canada Highway was moving slower than normal.
Witnesses at the scene said a petition was being circulated calling for
action by the government.
