You guys are feeling a slow down in the work/economy now its starting here Talking with some of the truck drivers I know from work are saying it is getting bad. One of the trucking companies that has been in the business since the 50s said they never seen it this bad even during the 80s recession. The paving company has laid their crew off there is no work. Most gravel trucks are parked maybe working once a week. Its not from the weather we can work 365 days a year there is no winter slow down because of snow we don't get much snow. Excavation contractors are probably just making equipment payments. It seems like everybody has decided to cut back on spending money. Glad I have a guaranteed job it looks like 2008 will be a rough year for most. Many people are worried it will be the 80s all over again. You guys quit sneezing over on the otherside of the boarder your giving us the sniffles The money that was flowing around the area like cheap wine has turned into little money being spent sipping on the cheap wine. To sum it up who ever says the our US neighbours economy doesn't affect Canada's is full of crap. We are seeing it already in the resource based communities that supply materials to the US.
