Authorities searching for tow truck companies to assist in the removal of trucks from Coutts border blockade are coming up empty-handed.
According to local towing companies, requests have come in since Sunday for trucks to assist RCMP should they look to haul away trucks and other vehicles participating in the border blockade.
The Western Standard spoke with a number of tow truck companies in southern Alberta including in Calgary, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat.
City Wide towing in Calgary said they had tow trucks at the blockade yesterday to help support anyone in need, but confirmed no trucks stayed on scene.
“Our trucks won’t be heading outside of Calgary today,” said a call centre employee at City Wide who did not want to give her name.
“We will be remaining in Calgary to service the surrounding area.”
TnT Towing in Lethbridge is one of the largest towing companies in the area. When contacted, the person who answered the phone said they had no comment but did indicate they had been contacted.
“We don’t know who it was that called, but we don’t want to get involved so we won’t be commenting.”
