A driver has been fired after a video capturing a tense moment between a truck and a bicycle went viral online following Saturday’s protests in Vancouver.
In the footage, a group of cyclists appears to be blocking the road as a truck continues to roll towards them. One cyclist appears to get out of the way just in time as the driver does not come to a stop.
Van Dokk Transport Ltd. confirmed that the driver has been fired.
“We do not stand behind the actions of this driver. His actions were his alone,”
-Company Owner Dustin Van Dokkumburg
The video sparked a major online response and the Chilliwack company has since taken down its website and social media sites.
"Freedom" includes being able to use your massive vehicle as a weapon without consequence. Is this professional truck driving? Are these the truckers crying for support?
