(Sept. 4, 2012) — I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings to everyone participating in National Trucking Week 2012.
Bringing together trucking professionals from across the country, this annual event is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of this vital sector. Truck transportation services play a key role in maintaining the dynamism and productivity of Canada’s economy. Your efforts are essential to the safe and efficient flow of goods across our country’s vast geography. Trucking brings Canadians together from coast to coast and connects us with our trading partners.
I am delighted to have this opportunity to personally commend the members of Canada’s trucking industry. I know that all Canadians are grateful for your contributions to the country’s economic success.
On behalf of the government of Canada, please accept my best wishes for a great week of events and for continued success in the future.
The Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P.
