Auto Parts Industry , Building Materials and Food Producers Among the Sectors Expected to Be Most Affected, Get Ready

Make Preparations!

The cross border vaccine mandate for truckers in/out of Canada is now in effect.  The U.S. vaccine mandate takes effect on January 22nd.

It will take a few days to see the consequences, but there will be consequences.

Keep in mind, any impact is taking place in a supply chain system that is already tenuous and unstable at best.  A small disruption that may have been minimally significant against a fully operational supply chain, is more likely to be a much bigger disruption in a supply chain that is already under a severe amount of demand side stress.  Somewhere in the range of 16,000 to 38,000 daily loads are likely to be impacted.

When questioned about this, Canadian Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic Leblanc says the trucking industry “has had adequate time to prepare for this.  Keep in mind, the mandate was announced 45 days ago (November 30th).  According to the Canadian government, changing the structural rules for all the logistics and commerce in cross border shipping, 45 days is enough notice.

WATCH:

CANADA – […] “I think you probably won’t see that movement … that the government’s looking for,” retail expert Bruce Winder told CTV News Channel on Saturday when asked if the effort will encourage truckers to get vaccinated.

[…]  The mandate throws a “major wrench” in the Canadian and North American supply chains, he added, with grocers, food producers, the auto parts industry and building materials among the sectors expected to be most affected.

“I really hope that we’re not at the stage where you see food insecurity, where you’re actually going to grocery stores and there’s nothing on the shelf,” Winder said.  “That could be the worst-case scenario.”

Mike Millian, president of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada, told CTV News Channel on Saturday that there were as many 23,000 vacancies at the end of the third quarter of 2021, with his group’s own studies showing that roughly 20 per cent of Canadian truck drivers operating across the border are unvaccinated.

[…] “If we remove a fifth of that workforce, we’re going to see shortages on shelves and we’re going to see inflation of prices, because the cost to bring this stuff here is going to go up.”  (read more)

The truth is no one knows how bad the disruption will be.  What we do know is that there will be disruption, and there is no infrastructure for a level of rig-switching at the border crossing region that could accommodate changing rigs, drop-offs and/or pick-ups or driver transfers on the scale that is being discussed.   The logistics here are a total mess.

Keep your fingers crossed, but prepare for FUBAR.

Industry insiders are concerned that the federal government’s vaccine mandate on cross-border truckers will worsen already-strained supply chains, leading to shortages at grocery stores.

“Ottawa’s plan to require all truckers entering from the United States to show proof of vaccination starting Jan. 15 cannot happen at a worse time,” Sylvain Charlebois, professor and senior director of the Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University, said on Twitter on Jan. 10.

“I’m not sure Canadians are aware of how fragile our food supply chain is right now, due to Omicron.”

The Liberal government announced in mid-November that truck drivers coming into Canada would need to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 15. Up until then, truckers had been exempted from the mandate as they are considered essential service providers.

But on the evening of Jan. 12, Canada Border Services Agency spokeswoman Rebecca Purdy told The Canadian Press that Canadian big-riggers would not have to quarantine upon re-entering the country if they are unvaccinated or have received only one dose.

Yet on Jan. 13, the federal government backtracked on Purdy’s claim, saying the original rules stayed.

“Let us be clear: This has not changed. The information shared yesterday was provided in error. Our teams have been in touch with industry representatives to ensure they have the correct information,” said Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, Transport Minister Omar Alghabra, and Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino in a joint statement.

Conservative transport critic Melissa Lantsman says the mandate for truckers will disrupt supply chains and adversely impact Canadians’ lives.

“Today’s reversal on the reversal by the government will only make Canada’s cost of living crisis worse by driving the price of basic essentials like groceries up,” she posted on Twitter on Jan. 13 following the ministers’ announcement.

“When Canadians need more certainty—they get less. This is a mess.”

In an interview with CP24 Tonight on Jan. 13, Charlebois said the vaccine mandate on truckers is akin to cutting “the flow of blood” of a person.

“If you cut anything, if you disrupt that flow, that fluidity, you will end up seeing empty shelves, higher food prices,” he said.

“Unfortunately, because on our side, we actually buy for well over $21 billion worth of food products [from the] U.S. every single year, and almost 70 percent of it actually goes through the border on wheels with truckers, and so there’s a lot of business, and a lot of that business happens between November and March.”

The mandate, once it comes into force on Saturday, Jan. 15, will require Canadian truckers to “meet requirements for pre-entry, arrival, and Day 8 testing, as well as quarantine requirements,” said the ministers in the joint statement, as these truckers “can’t be denied entry in Canada.”

For non-Canadian truckers crossing from the United States, they will be directed back if they cannot provide their proof of vaccination or a valid medical contraindication to the COVID-19 vaccines.

Charlebois said the screening of every truck at the land borders will slow everything down, from transportation to warehousing to distribution, and will drive up food prices.

“When you slow things down with supply chains, it will end up costing more, costing more for consumers in the end,” the professor told CP24.

“We were expecting food prices to go up by as much as 7 percent in 2022. This could actually put the inflation rate at a much higher level for 2022 as a result of this disruption, unfortunately.”

Ron Foxcroft, chairman and president of Fluke Transportation, says the last-minute reversal by Ottawa puts the trucking sector in “peril.”

“Before March 6, 2020, our industry was about 18,000 drivers short, and now the numbers are closer to, in Canada, about 23,000,” he said in an interview with Global News’ “On Point with Alex Pierson” on Jan. 13.

“That alone is a big problem. Now you throw in the pandemic, and now you throw in this gongshow today.”

Foxcroft agreed with the host that the mandate will not only sideline thousands of truckers, but it will also affect every Canadian who needs essential goods eventually.

“We truck essential services, things that go into grocery stores, big box stores, pharmacy stores,” he said. “The average person has to depend on that, the average person has to eat.”

But if more truckers choose to leave the sector for good, Canadians will bear the brunt of it.

“Finally, we’re going to have shelves empty—and forget the price, I mean, it’s going to hurt the little guy, it’s going to hurt everyone in Canada,” Foxcroft said.

Stephen Laskowski, president of the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), echoed Foxcroft’s sentiment of vaccinated truckers being sidelined when the vaccine mandate kicks in.

“We’re a reflection of Canadian society. Right now about 15–16 percent of Canadian society isn’t vaccinated. We can expect that a minimum of 10 percent of these drivers not to be vaccinated,” he said in an interview with CP24 Tonight on Jan. 13, along with Charlebois.

Meanwhile, the United States is preparing to impose similar restrictions on Canadian truckers on Jan. 22.

Laskowski said the CTA has been warning the Canadian and U.S. governments that this is not the right time to implement the mandate.

“Both Ottawa and Washington appear not to heed our warnings,” he said.

“They are not heeding the warnings of other members of the supply chain, our customers, and we’re about to understand those consequences on Saturday.”

The left worships government. They don't believe in God, so government is their god. They truly believe that with enough government intervention, with enough money, with enough force - government can do anything. They even think that the government can change global temperatures! These people are exactly as you said, nothing more than religious zealots that want their "benevolent god" - the government - to fix all of the problems in their life. If you disagree, you are "morally reprehensible" in their eyes.
