WINNIPEG, Man. — The Manitoba Trucking Association is extending thanks to its members, and the trucking industry at large for a successful celebration of National Trucking Week.
The event, held this year Sept. 4-10, is dedicated to the recognition of the trucking industry in Canada, as well as a celebration of the contributions of those who work in trucking.
As part of National Trucking Week, the Manitoba Trucking Association held several events for its members and their employees. More than 80 industry members joined the MTA at its offices for a BBQ lunch Sept. 7. The event included a number of special guests, such as John Spacek, Assistant Deputy Minister of Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation, MTA president Tom Payne, S/Sgt. Mark Hodgson of the Winnipeg Police Service and Stephan Seckenski of Goodyear Canada.
On Sept. 8, members of the MTA staff visited the truck weight stations in Headingly, Man. and West Hawk Lake, Man. to hand out coffee, doughnuts and other assorted gifts to truck drivers.
“National Trucking Week allows us to recognize the contributions of those working in the trucking industry as well as the contributions trucking makes to the economy of Manitoba and Canada as whole,” says Bob Dolyniuk, executive director of the MTA, “with so much economy activity in this province related to trucking, National Trucking Week is an important celebration for us.”
