TORONTO, Ont. – On Oct. 9, members and staff of the Ontario Trucking Association met with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip at the Festival of Ontario held at the Toronto National Trade Centre.
As a showcase for Ontario to celebrate 50 years of growth and development, key industry sectors were brought together to present the best of the province to the royal couple who are touring Canada to mark Her Majesty’s 50 years on the throne.
To show how the industry has progressed over time, the OTA displayed a vintage 1952 International tractor, which was made the year Her Majesty was crowned.
Premier Ernie Eves and Transportation Minister, Norm Sterling, were also in attendance to help celebrate Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee.
The OTA exhibit garnered attention from Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh, and OTA president, David Bradley, had the opportunity to chat with them about modal share and the fact that the trucking industry’s superior service is why trucking dominates freight movement.
