DIEPPE, NB — The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association and Casino New Brunswick donated $25,000 to the Greater Moncton’s Transportation Discovery Centre, last week.
It’s a move in the direction of educating youth on the importance of transportation. “The schools will be able to bring in their students to educate them on the industry,” said Wes Armour, CEO of Armour Transport, “and show them how important the transportation industry is in Atlantic Canada.”
The APTA held a couple of fundraising events over the past year, raising $20,000 for the development of the Transportation Discovery Centre. Casino New Brunswick bought in with $5,000.
“We are very excited about this project and the positive impact that it will have in our community and our downtown,” said Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc.?
“The transportation industry is a big part of Atlantic Canada,” said Jean Marc Picard of the APTA. “This center will certainly be a great addition to the museum, a great place to visit and learn about our industry and its history.”
