Inter-City Truck Lines
Reimer purchased a carrier named Inter-City Truck Lines of Toronto. They mainly operated in Ontario and into Quebec. Reimer never did merge with them and finally shut them down.

Inter City Truck Lines was a major Ontario LTL carrier. It's authority ran from Windsor to Toronto, Toronto to North Bay and Sudbury and Toronto to Montreal. Inter-City bought TRANS CANADA HIGHWAY EXPRESS for the authority Toronto & Montreal to MB, SK and AB. They bought FLEET EXPRESS for the rights between Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. (personal observations : I worked for Diversey Canada in 1973. Diversey used Inter City to ship to all the western warehouses, a fullload to Vancouver, Calgary, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. The Inter City driver was there (Diversey's warehouse in Clarkson ) 4 days per week. Inter City must have hauled a lot of parts for General Motors as all their tractors were GMC's.
After US deregulation, Inter City resurrected the Trans Canada (Truck Lines) name and hired owner operators to run full loads, US 48 states to Ontario and Quebec.
