As a crazy Canuck redneck myself, I hesitate to find fault with this creative trucker.
It does look like he made the effort to squish the back end of the Versatile enough that it was close to legal height.( Or perhaps the overpasses did it for him, either way, it served the purpose).
If the tickets were for insecure loads, I would question how they would stand up in court. IF there are enough straps/chains per item, and nothing loose, then there is a lot of subjectivity involved beyond that in deciding what is secure enough and what isn't.
If it was for over dimensions, truck/trailer not meeting standards, or paperwork, then so be it.
But, in Alberta( and I have asked multiple times), as long as it is farm machinery, most of the overdimension etc rules are irrelevant, until you take down a powerline at least. A commercial vehicle can haul farm machinery of any dimensions without permits or pilots. Those look a lot like farm machinery to me.
