TORONTO, Ont. — The Ministry of Transportation has awarded Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) chief David Bradley a distinguished MTO partner award.
The Assistant Deputy Minister’s Partnership Award was presented to Bradley for helping keep Ontario’s roads among the safest in North America. The award was presented during the Road Safety Stakeholder Dinner by MTO assistant deputy minister Heidi Francis.
It goes to an individual or organization that “serves as models in collaboration and cooperation with MTO; provides service above and beyond expectations, and works closely with the department to ensure the province remains at the forefront of road safety.”
“David is a trusted and dependable partner,” Francis said in her presentation. “He has always represented the best interest of the trucking industry and been a valued advocate of road safety.”
Bradley said he was honored to receive the award on behalf of OTA.
“I am honored to receive this award. However, I do so on behalf of the OTA members who have consistently and unrepentantly established truck safety as the key element of their vision for the industry and of the dedicated team of professionals, current and past, who worked tirelessly to implement that vision,” he said. “If I have made a contribution it has been by giving voice to the members’ vision; in assembling our team and, I hope, in providing them with the encouragement and support they needed to get the job done.”
