An Ottawa woman's life-long dream might not top many bucket lists, but she's thrilled that she got to live it.
As a short person, Shirley Barkell, 86, said she's always been in awe of the size of transport trucks and the ability of those that operate them on a daily basis.
Erb Transport driver Lyoness Woodstock heard about Barkell's dream through a conversation with her daughter, quickly received approval from his company, and was more than happy to be able to bring the dream to life.
Barkell and her daughter soon joined Woodstock on a 70 km drive.
"This has been on her bucket list for a long time," said Barkell's daughter, Leslie. "It was an amazing day for both of us."
