There isn't really anything for short-haul drivers.  With most of the transport deductions, there is an expectation that they are away from home long enough to need lodging.  They can claim meals only, when they usually claim for lodging, but may have stayed elsewhere occasionally.  Otherwise it is no different for any of us going to work and coming home at the end of the day.  CRA expects us to eat breakfast and dinner at home and pack a lunch.

This is not correct for truckers that are away from their home terminal over 160 KM for over 12 hours a day!!!!

Exactly, but your comment has nothing to do with the original question or the answer.

Still has nothing to do with the original question which specified 8 hours.
