Port Metro Vancouver is expected to be fully operational today after truck drivers finally struck an agreement with the province, federal government and port. The government has now scrapped the controversial ‘back-to-work’ legislation that was introduced this week and no licences will be rescinded as a result of the strike. Truck drivers will receive a 12% pay rise in round-trip rates and a C$25.13 minimum hourly rate. Estimates suggest the 28-day strike cost the Canadian economy C$885m per week.
