The higher weight that the containers of processed pork carry means that the trailers the containers are locked on to should be in tip top shape. Sadly, this is often not the case. Arnold Brothers Transport, a huge mover of pork products being shipped to the coast in containers does little to no preventive maintenance on their container trailers. This means that items that cannot be seen by the driver when they do their pre-trip inspections could be on the verge of failing and causing a truck to go off the road or hit another vehicle. The container trailers owned by this company are in such poor condition as to be a menace to the driver of the truck and the motoring public.

Husband heard that one of the head mechanics at Arnold Brothers terminal in Winnipeg "fixed" the lights on a trailer where the ABS was crossing into and causing a turn signal on a trailer not to work, by disconnecting the ABS and then sent the trailer out to be loaded. Brother-in-law is a mechanic and he has heard that the container trailers are not being seen at all for maintenance checks any more. One guy talked about orange goo coming out of some part of a trailer and no greasing being done, and corrosion all over the place. Sister lives in Golden, and she said that the RCMP have been told about the condition of the Arnold Brothers container trailers and so hopefully, they will start checking on them and get the dangerous ones off the road.
