Quebec company offers free room and board for truckers during COVID-19 crisis

A family-run Quebec company, Groupe Robin, is offering weary truck drivers a little respite as they continue providing their essential service amid the novel coronavirus crisis.

Truck drivers will permitted to stay free of charge for a thirty-minute period at one of three Holiday Inn and Suites hotel locations in Saint-Hyacinthe, Trois-Rivières and in Vaudreuil-Dorion.

Drivers will have access to a room, to use the shower and bathrooms.

“The prime minister asked to help them so we thought it was easy to say ‘hello we can help you,’” Groupe Robin President Nellie Robin said.

Local truckers are applauding the move.
