Default Re: Good Morning, It's FRIDAY!!!!

From: The Canadian Atlantic Coast:

Local newspaper headline: ''TRUCKERS' BLOCKADE SPARKS NEW BRUNSWICK FOOD, FUEL SHORTAGE''' It goes on: ''Northern New Brunswick grocery stores running out of produce, milk, meat as police negotiate with truckers to end gas price protest''.

This is not a good situation and it's difficult to blame the truckers. They negotiate rates for a period of time and with the sudden high increase in fuel cost, they will lose. The problems compound as dairy farmers have to throw away milk because they cannot move it to market and it just goes on and on.

Have a good weekend Cruisemates,

Bill
