WINNIPEG, Man. — Just weeks after the FBI issued a warning that fuel trucks may be targeted by terrorists, the Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) is presenting a trucks and terrorism seminar.

The one-day seminar and workshop is being presented by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and its Operation Pipeline/Convoy program. It is similar to the one recently held in Alberta and other jurisdictions throughout Canada, and is aimed at identifying threats before an incident takes place.

Organizers say that the techniques covered in the course have already led to fleet officials thwarting crimes before they take place. The workshop will allow attendees to form their own security plans, or enhance them to address the increased risks facing many fleets today.

The workshop will take place July 23 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at The Hudson Room of the McPhillips Street Station. There is a $20 registration fee, which includes the cost of a light lunch. For more information, call the MTA at 204-632-6600.
