TORONTO, Ont. — Truck News has been nominated for five KRW awards for business journalism.
Trucknews.com has once again received a nod as one of the Top 10 Canadian business Web sites. This is the third year in a row that the Web site has been nominated in this category. In 2006 and 2007, trucknews.com placed in the top five during the KRW awards ceremony, which will be held this year on June 4.
Also qualifying in the Top 10 this year are the articles: ‘Up in Smoke,’ detailing Ontario’s questionable ban on waste oil heaters; and ‘Mexican Invasion?’ which looks at Canada’s role in the controversial US pilot project allowing Mexican trucks to operate in the US. Both articles, written by James Menzies, were nominated in the ‘Best News Coverage’ category.
Qualifying in the ‘Best Profile of a Person’ category was Adam Ledlow’s story ‘Shattered Life’ about the trials of Lars Christensen, a trucker whose life was turned upside down after a rock was thrown through the windshield of his truck. Ledlow also qualified in the ‘Best Profile of a Company’ category for his story on Lange Transportation’s geothermal heating initiative.
