Everyone talks about the crime rates in Canada and what to do about it. I get asked the question often, so maybe we can pin this thread, and people can add to the list. Here's what we usually do...
1. When you cross the border, don't tell them where you're going, make up a bogus place. If I'm going to Shawinigan I tell them I'm going to Chicoutimi and vice-versa.
2a. Park at a Hotel with secure parking for trucks.
2b. or stay at a smaller place out of town.
3. Cover your VIN number.
