OMG Pig trucks are the worst. One parked near me at one of those Wendy's/TIm Horton's rest stops between Ottawa & Toronto. Those poor pigs were screaming their heads off in terror. I felt so scared for them... you know.. knowing where they were going... :( I also have seen some chicken trucks on this route... and some train cars seem to be for livestock too. :(

Speaking of pig trucks, John Tory's campaign bus rolled by me on the way in this am.

If I had a rocket launcher...
