    Unreal. Driving is too simple a task to be a red seal trade. What a joke

    The actual joke is for how simple it really is, that so many can't do it properly and comprehend everything.

    So will those of us who've held a Class 1 for years be grandfathered? Or will we be forced to jump through a bunch of bull#### hoops in order to keep our license?

    Also, the Red Seal is an interprovincial qualification, so does this mean every province will be adopting these standards as well?

    It's hard to say as they are still rolling out information on this. But I'd think alberta class 1 holders get grandfathered....but it's a government program so who knows.

    Other provinces will probably follow suit after alberta gets the bugs out of it, realistically could be years before that happens as it looks like the first drivers under this program would be completing the program in 2027 or 2028 maybe?

    More Alberta companies will be plating elsewhere. A trade falls under fair labour standards act

    How does that affect things? I'm not familiar with the impact that act would have.

    I just hope they don't screw with us existing Class 1 license holders.
