I am pretty sure Canada had its own Mack Kenworth Chev Ford and no doubt other manufacturers and the UK trucks just couldnt match these for the jobs required and the UK manufacturers wouldnt change to suit

Because Malta and Jamaica were main British markets and the hot dry climate meant that the trucks did not rot away as fast as they would have in the traditional British wet climate, also certainly in the case of Malta the island is very tiny so in real terms they didn't get to work as hard as they would have in other larger countries.

Malta/ Cyprus/Jamaica historically have used British trucks , very few if any are bought new, they are exported from UK when they are around 10 year old , so gradually Malta etc is switching over to DAF / Scania / Volvo etc as they are retired in UK and are exported.
