The trailer is logo'd for Canadian Tire's 75 Anniversary which was 13 years before! I had never seen that wrap on a CTC trailer during that time. I saw this truck backed into the receiving dock at my local Metro store but it looked odd. At first glance a Volvo daycab would be from Wilsons Truck Lines. The red wasn't Wilson's though and on looking at it closely the Canada Cartage name was on the door and the unit number started with 11.
