Dear editor,

This is about a young trucker who in 1995, ’96 and ’97, went to work in Yellowknife, N.W.T. He came out of Bay Roberts, Nfld.

The young man’s name was Corey Bradbury. He was only 22 years-old when he started driving in the North. He was a trucker and drove tanker. This job takes a lot of ability and concentration driving on the ice roads.

They often work 14 to 16 hours a day – it’s not easy.

I would like to take this time to explain that on Mar. 25, 1997, Corey died in an accident in the N.W.T. at such an age and when this column is read, I would like to ask for one minute of silence on Mar. 25. It would be a fitting tribute and an honor.

Thomas Lancaster, Underby, B.C.
