MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — With the Sept. 30 deadline fast approaching, Bridgestone Canada is urging members of the trucking industry to send in their nomination’s for the manufacturer’s Canadian Truck Hero Award. The award program looks for Canadian trucking professionals who have gone beyond the call of duty to lend a helping hand to someone in need while on the road.


“We should not let heroic highway acts go unrecognized,” said Jim West, general manager of commercial products with Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions, a division of BSCA. Bridgestone officials added that all acts, no matter how big or small, are significant.


The award winner receives $3,000, a specially-commissioned trophy and a two-day expense-paid trip for two to the award ceremony in November held in Toronto in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Ontario Trucking Association. BSCA will also make a $3,000 donation to the recipient’s charity of choice. The employer of the award recipient, along with a guest, will also receive an expense-paid trip to attend the award ceremony.
