The Owner-Operator’s Business Association of Canada has
partnered with a pair of owner-operators to bring a French-language trucking
show to XM Satellite Radio.
OBAC partnered with the
Web site Lecamionneur.com and “Entre les 2 Lignes,” a weekly French-language
radio show aired on XM Satellite Radio Channel 172.
According to a press release from OBAC, both the site and the radio
show were started by Jacque Plante, an owner-operator from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Plante runs the Web site and will co-host the show with Jean Catudel, another
owner-operator based in Yumaska, Quebec. Both Plante and Catudel are OOIDA
Joanne Ritchie, executive director of OBAC, told Land Line that the show provides a unique
service for truckers in Canada.
“This means we’re going to be able to reach French-speaking truckers in
Quebec and elsewhere with the news and information they need in their own
language, and that’s something they were lacking before,” she said.
The show airs Sundays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT.
