For the past few years, Canadian appreciation for professional truck drivers and the invaluable service they provide has grown. We echo that appreciation through our Canada’s Most Driven contest – a driver recognition program that we hold at our Petro-Pass™ sites each spring. Every Canadian truck driver deserves our thanks, but these four drivers really went the extra kilometre.
Gaétan Laprise (Quebec)
“He is a trucker at heart.”
Gaétan was nominated because his colleagues say “trucking is in his blood.” He’s passionate about safety, respect on the road and working in eastern Canada. With a knack for mechanics, Gaétan always drives with spare parts, so he can help fellow drivers get back on the road.
Ann Marie Mckay (Alberta)
“I love my job.”
For Ann Marie, the joy and pride of trucking is in supporting Canadian workers. Every day, she drives crews to work, just north of Fort McMurray, o en stopping along the way to get them snacks. “I take pride in knowing they trust me to keep them safe on the road,” she says.
Leeann Betournay (Ontario)
“I have a whole career of accident-free miles.”
When Leeann started 21 years ago, there weren’t many women in trucking. It wasn’t always easy, but she stuck with it, because she loves the industry, the views and the people she meets along the way. With her outstanding safety record, we’re glad she persevered.
Andrew Coruzzi (Ontario)
“I strive to be the best I can be.”
Trucking for 12 hours a day isn’t for the faint of heart, but Andrew believes food is important. It’s why he continued delivering to Ontario grocery stores during the pandemic. It’s also why — when he’s not driving — Andrew cooks meals for the underprivileged.
Many thanks to these four drivers and to all the truck drivers across Canada, working tirelessly to keep Canadians supplied and our country moving.
