  3. Point boy says:

    Looked like a brand new truck. More of the tax payers money down the drain

    • wahoo says:

      It is not just the truck consider the wall and how many man hours it will take them to rebuild it…unless we hire a private company to do the work maybe the two guys who fixed Shelly Bay bus shelter in two days.

    • Micro says:

      Spanking new. Got a cement truck too.

    • wahoo says:

      No comment (I think).

  4. Spanner Breath says:

    Job creation, someone to pull the truck out, some one to fix the truck and someone to fix the wall.

  5. Dready says:

    The driver will get promoted!

    • The Original Truth™ says:

      I guess the promotion will be for them making an impact on the economy. :D

    Still waiting to see the brand new bus.

  7. Manuel says:

    Who tested these W & E drivers for their ability to drive a truck? Oh yes, I forgot, it was one of their mates at TCD…

  8. Mel Brooks says:

    Perhaps W&E will fix the home owner’s wall gratis?

  9. BDA1 says:

    the driver was on his cell phone this morning driving east on north shore

    Don’t worry this government has more money to waste on another truck for another year…at our expense.
