TORONTO, Ont. — Bridgestone/Firestone has kicked off its search for a Canadian trucker that goes above and beyond their regular duties.
Nomination forms are now available for the 44th Annual Canadian Truck Hero Award after opening ceremonies were held yesterday at Metro Hall in downtown Toronto.
The event was planned to raise regular motorists’ awareness of the caliber of truckers plying their trade along Canada’s highways, as well as those already in the industry.
Director of public relations and advertising with Bridgestone/Firestone Jerry Priddle says this is the most public kickoff they’ve ever done.
“Anytime someone comes across or participates in a situation where truckers helped rescue somebody (they can be nominated),” says Priddle.
