Average salary as a truck driver in Canada?

Hi, presently in german television you see a lot of TV series concerning emigration (among others) to Canada. In two cases they worked in Canada as truck drivers and they said, that you earn good money with this job and that you could live quite good in comparison with the money you earn in Germany. But they never tell what they really earn and how long they have to work for it! Can somebody tell me the minimum, average and maximum salary in Canada for a truck driver and if it's true what they say... Any truck drivers here? Thank you for your answers / information.
