He took at expert-observer’s eye view of how economic change, such as free trade, has impacted truckers and their industry.
The shortlisted books were chosen from a field of 59 submissions and cover public policy issues such as criminal law, governance, and trade and transportation.
The winner of the prize, as well as the two, $10,000-winning runners-up, will be announced May 8 at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
