TORONTO, Ont. — US Ambassador Paul Cellucci will talk about the current and future situation at the border when he addresses Canada’s trucking industry tomorrow.
Cellucci will speak at approximately 8:40 a.m. in the Cohen Ballroom at the Toronto Congress Centre (650 Dixon Road, Toronto), as part of the Ontario Trucking Association’s annual convention. The breakfast event runs from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
The OTA’s annual two-day convention draws over 4,000 presidents and chief executive officers of leading trucking companies from across Canada and the United States.
Approximately 80 per cent of Ontario’s trade with the United States is carried by truck with more than 4 million trucks crossing the Ontario-U.S. border each year. OTA members haul 75 per cent of the province’s goods moved by truck, generating about $5 billion a year in sales. In Ontario, the trucking industry employs more than 200,000 people, almost 5% of the province’s labour force.
