TORONTO, Ont. – Four Ontario cabinet members were on hand to help the Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) and broadcaster CHUMCity deliver a tractor-trailer load of 7,000 toys to Queen’s Park for Toronto’s needy children before Christmas.
Santa Claus was on hand, as were OTA president David Bradley and chairman Frank Connors. Along with the ministers, the three passed the toys from the trailer to awaiting delivery trucks.
“He hasn’t missed a delivery in over 100 years,” Bradley said of the red-suited fellow. Lending their elbow grease were Children’s Secretariat minister Margaret Marland, Economic Development and Trade minister Al Palladini, Community and Social Services minister John Baird, and Municipal Affairs and Housing minister Tony Clement.
The toys will be distributed to the city’s needy children in time for Christmas through a network of charity organizations. n
