Not sure. the end destination would have to be close enough via truck, which chances are it isn't.

It COULD have been, but Calgary beat us to the punch, and internationally, so did Minneapolis. Both are now close enough to justify skipping us.

I'm not sure anyone overstates it... we are in a unique position that makes us useful, not untouchable. If it's cross country and staying north of the border, we're in a great spot. If it's international... well then we'd have to be a more useful destination than what's immediately south, assuming delivery is central.
