Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced a new provincial task force on June 29 that will oversee the trucking industry after numerous incidents of tow truck "turf wars" have been reported.

Ford said the new task force will work alongside local police departments, the industry and municipal partners to develop a regulatory, oversight model that will increase safety and enforcement, clarify protections for consumers, improve industry standards and consider tougher penalties for violators.

“There’s a small group of bad apples out there causing trouble, lighting trucks on fire, smashing windows and getting mixed up in organized crime. That ends now,” Ford said, referring to the recent criminal activity and violence reported within the towing industry.

Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney provided further details on the province's new task force during the press conference. She said the task force, which has already met twice, is led by the Ministry of Transportation and the solicitor general Sylvia Jones.
