Discussion

1) “…autonomous trucks will change our lives, and most Canadians just aren’t prepared.  The impacts of this technology will be profound.”   What are some of these “profound” changes?

2) Profound changes came with the advent of the car over the horse and carriage, but took decades to come in. Why might this innovation be more quickly accepted?
