BC’s Transportation and Infrastructure Minister says licensed container trucking companies are still being audited – even without a commissioner.
In a statement, Todd Stone says six audits on trucking companies have been done.
Of those six audits, all of them owed money for their licenses.
Stone says the office is also handling all day-to-day requirements while it finds a replacement commissioner.
Andy Smith stepped down from the role earlier this month.
His appointment as commissioner was believed by truckers to be contentious as Smith is also the president of the BC Maritime Employers Association.
That particular association represents companies during contract talks with unions at Metro Vancouver Ports.
Last year, Metro Vancouver truckers walked off the job.
That job action is believed to have cost the economy millions of dollars.
