The Ontario Ministry of Transportation shut down 39 trucking businesses following the Freedom Convoy protests.
The ministry confirmed to Truck News that there has been 12 suspension and seizure orders issued onto large truck businesses that were involved in the protests. This allowed the suspension of their operating authority in Canada. It also allows them to seize all plates registered to the companies.
Another 27 seizure orders were issued to large truck operators outside of the province. This effectively bans them from operating a commercial motor vehicle in Ontario.
"In an effort to preserve future police investigations into the illegal occupation in Ottawa, the ministry will not release the names of affected businesses at this time," a ministry spokesperson said.
24 passenger vehicle plates were also suspended, as well as 34 passenger vehicles from outside the province. A total of 115 vehicles were towed.
