Canada is a huge country, so getting food products from farm to market before they spoiled was a bit of a challenge. Transporting food changed dramatically when the first Ford Model T Pickup rolled off the assembly line in 1925. Suddenly, farmers could carry thousands of pounds of product from point A to point B. There was, for a brief time, a stigma against driving gas-guzzling vehicles when the price of fuel was climbing, but that faded away. Owning a truck, especially one of the luxury equipped newer models, quickly became a status symbol. While they still earn their keep on farms across the nation, only about one out of every 100 truck owners is a farmer today.
