VANCOUVER – Frustrated truckers held a rolling strike today with more than 300 semis holding up traffic on some major routes. They’re upset with new rules at Port Metro Vancouver. At this point port licenses have only been approved for 68 companies, which is down from 165. That leaves about 600 drivers out of work and they say the process in deciding who gets a license has been unfair. Today’s protest started in Delta and went through Richmond via Highway 91, it ended up in Vancouver and down Highway 1 back to Surrey.
