TORONTO, Ont. — The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) has crowned its latest Road Knights team, comprised of 10 exceptional professional drivers.
They’ll go forth and spread the good word of the trucking industry, the careers it offers, the vital role the industry plays in the economy and how motorists can safely share the road with big trucks.
The 10 newest Road Knights will serve a two-year term, commencing immediately.
This year’s team consists of: Chris Bender, Steed Standard Transport; Barry Elkiw, Meyers Transport; David O’Neill, Kriska Holdings; Dale Fearman, Kim-Tam Truck Leasing; Michael John Paolozzi, Trimac Transportation; Wayne Simpson, Liquid Cargo Lines; Jim Jackman, Thomson Terminals; George and Cynthia Sutherland, Bison Transport; and Rick Cameron, KBD Transport.
The team is sponsored by the OTA Allied Trades Division and was selected by a panel consisting of industry representatives, media, enforcement and safety agencies and OTA staff.
“I am extremely pleased with the level of response from the industry for this latest Road Knights selection process,” said OTA President David Bradley. “The quality of the 2013-2014 team is tremendous. Their wealth of experience and knowledge will make them excellent ambassadors to the industry.”
The team will officially begin its community outreach initiatives in March. To arrange a community visit and presentation with an OTA Road Knight, contact Renee Lyle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
