BATHURST, N.B. — Truck mechanics and welders will have an opportunity to get out from under the hood, and into the spotlight at this year’s New Brunswick provincial trades championships this weekend.

The competition will recognize students who are excelling in a variety of heavy-duty mechanical areas, and winners will represent the province at the national championships in Edmonton later this year.

“It is especially appropriate that we support such competitions and give attention to our trades people at this time,” says Training and Employment Development Minister Norman McFarlane. “Recent studies show we face a potential shortage of such highly-skilled workers as large numbers of those in these professions reach retirement age.”

The competition will be held at Bathursts’ New Brunswick Community College on Saturday.
