TORONTO, Ont. – For the first time in more than two decades, a trucking industry executive has been elected as chairman of the board of the Ontario Safety League.
“Every day, I see drivers and pedestrians do unsafe things, things that make no sense,” said Gord Dennis, the new chairman who also manages Molson Breweries’ distribution operation out of Etobicoke, Ont. “Actions have consequences, but many people are so distracted they don’t think about consequences.”
The new board includes 24 members and two honorary lifetime members, from a variety of backgrounds.
“The board of directors is a fantastic group of professionals with one interest: improving safety through education,” explained Bert Killian, the League’s president and general manager. “We want to help prevent road carnage that results from poorly trained drivers. Our proactive approach to improved safety education and standards will benefit anyone who uses the sidewalks, streets or highways.” n
