Ontario Hits the Comedy Cruise Control Unleashes Cheeky Campaign for Women in Trucking

TORONTO, ON – The Ontario government, in a bid to turn laughter into high gear, has launched an uproariously bold campaign to boost women’s involvement in trucking. The initiative, aimed at shifting more ‘femme’ into ‘freight,’ is providing up to $1.3 million in funding to train 54 lucky ladies in the fine art of trucking.

In what can only be described as a comedic jack-knife, the campaign has plastered Ontario’s highways with billboards featuring hilariously questionable one-liners such as:

“Who Needs High Heels When You’ve Got High Wheels?”

“Forget Glass Slippers; This Princess Wears Steel-Toed Boots!”

“Making Up While Mackin’ up!”

“Forget Fairy Tales. We Drive Freight!”

“Mascara and Motor Oil – The Perfect Blend!”

“We’re Breaking Hearts and Shifting Gears!”

“Trucks are Pink, Not Just Blue. Girls Can Drive Them Too!”

“From Lipstick to Dipstick: Women Rule the Road!”

“Driving in Heels? No Big Deal!”

“Who Runs the World? Girls! Who Runs the Roads? Well, Girls… Soon!”

Besides serving up a healthy dose of humor, the program provides training scholarships, mentorships, and a supportive network for prospective women drivers. The funding also covers up to $4,500 for child-care and living expenses, making the trucking industry more accessible for women.

Opinions on the campaign’s humorous approach are mixed. Critics argue the borderline slapstick may downplay the seriousness of the profession, while supporters find it a refreshing change, praising the government’s audacity.

This comedy-laden campaign raises a crucial question – Will humor be the key to shifting gears in gender norms within the trucking industry, or will it simply offer a chuckle on the highways? For now, Ontario is sure having a good laugh on the road to equality.
