Cargo theft leading to Billions of dollars in losses for Canadian businesses
Theft of shipping cargo is a major problem in Canada, Jennifer Fox, vice president of trade and security at Canadian Trucking Alliance, said. Trucking industry officials have said cargo theft causes billions of dollars in losses each year for Canadian businesses, CBC reported. Ms. Fox said "we had one insurer say it was a $5 billion Canadian ($4.85 billion) problem," but she thinks "that's an understatement of how prevalent the problem is." Trucking firms usually do not report incidents of cargo thefts as they fear insurance rates will rise, she said. (Source

Flash Fog devices being installed in GTA 
In an attempt to minimize the loss during a smash and grab, Flash Fog is a device that clocks the merchandise from thieves. Using both a thick fog and plasma strobe light makes it rather impossible for the assailants to see. The Flash Fog is about the size of a computer and sits on a wall or inside a false ceiling. Because it's wireless, it works even if alarm lines are cut. The strobe light resembles a small, regular lamp, and a single Flash Fog can fill a 700-sq.-ft. store and costs less than $2,600 to install. (Source
