Minister Garneau continues to show his strong public support for the trucking industry throughout the COVID-19 crisis. From assisting the industry through the reshaping of the border, amendments to regulations related to trucking, essential service definition and identification documentation for the trucking industry, Minister Garneau has been lending his guidance, leadership and support for the Canadian trucking industry.
Most recently, the minister has championing the role of Canadians drivers through supportive tweets under the hashtag #thankatrucker. It appears the support for our industry runs deep in the Garneau family when his brother Philippe tweeted out short video with the message, “Canada wouldn’t be the same without our brave truck drivers. We salute you.”
“The Canadian Trucking Alliance and its provincial association members would like to thank Minister Garneau for his ongoing commitment to our sector. These days, like all cabinet ministers, Minister Garneau is being asked to address a multitude of important issues, not all of which reside in our sector. Yet, even with all his other commitments, he has always given his attention to our sector and that is appreciated by the members of the Alliance,” said CTA President Stephen Laskowski.
