Walking in Waterloo Region
That truck in that alley? I doubt it.

Why not?  It's a straight through alley, no sharp turns.  Turning into the alley would be slow, but the roads abutting it are wide, so that's not going to be an issue either.  There's no reason it couldn't fit.  It would obviously block traffic, but they're already blocking the alley.  This way they would *only* block the alley.
Eby Manor's driver doesn't have to use the alley, but why would he choose to pull up on the sidewalk and block that? Just stay in the road lane- it's being made impassable anyway- with the four-ways on. There are other lanes for traffic to use, which is not true of the sidewalk.
