Noblies: [noh-buh lize]: tell a fake story for a good cause
This story reeks of fakery. Why?
- occurred beside truck inspection station (secure area with no adjacent onlookers)
- time of incident: 9:18 (9,9)
- vicsim is 69
- no names, hospitals
- tires in video show no sign of shearing
- brake chamber shows no signs of shearing
- tire came off rear right of truck…odds are it would have left the highway to the right ditch, not crossing the median
- SUV damage inconsistent with tire impact, would have most likely rolled to avoid tire
- photos and video all look well presented and media ready
- suspect tractor company name blurred out
- highway reopened at 1:19pm (911)
A 69-year-old man was seriously injured on Hwy. 400 this morning when a set of wheels flew off a transport truck and struck his SUV.Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the tires came off a southbound transport truck just north of King Rd. around 9:18 a.m.

The trucking industry is deregulated in Ontario like in the US: so rates and corners are cut. This is clearly a warning to all carriers to be careful.
Those that stage these events will most likely feel no remorse as it is for a good cause: a noble lie.
Does that make it wrong then? You decide.
Hard to figure out this one. Here’s the name of the alleged victim: http://www.torontosun.com/2016/01/29/former-aecon-ceo-killed-by-flying-tire
Paul Koenderman, the 69-year-old former CEO of Aecon Group Inc.’s industrial business unit
The obit says Aecon (road construction among other provincial contracts), but the “memories” page conflicts saying he worked at B&W, a nuclear power firm (huge beneficiaries of fraudulent largesse). Another oddity is that the family wants donations made to the heart and stroke charity. Are these anomalies indicating a real person died but was used for a noble lie?
Odd, but not impossible, that the immediate problem/reaction/solution is to call for more laws on truck safety:

Bolstering Ontario’s trucking safety laws would be a fitting tribute to a man killed this week by a flying truck tire on Hwy. 400, an old friend of his says.
Bob Kerton, who worked alongside Paul Koenderman on the University of Waterloo’s board of governors and grew up with him in Ajax, said the system needs reform.
