As we find ourselves in the spring of 2021 with temperatures slowly rising, flowers blooming, grass growing and outdoor activities being enjoyed, we are hoping for a brighter more enjoyable future to begin soon. It has been over a year since the pandemic stated which caused a postponement to our monthly meetings, too long since we were able to enjoy each other’s company sharing stories, experiences, getting advice or just kidding around. Hopefully, yourself, family, friends, colleagues, and fellow staff have not been infected by the virus. With immunizations scheduled with many already administered it may provide some relief to the restrictions we are living with. We can only hope for a new normal that allows some of the freedoms we had with the possibility of getting together.
The transportation industry continues to grow in many ways which includes the technical aspect that we work in each day. As vehicles and equipment advance, we must learn, understand, and adapt to these changes or be left behind. Passing on the knowledge we have acquired to peer technicians or especially apprentices, keeps our industry growing. Part of our apprentices training includes an “in class” portion, many of us favour Conestoga College. The TMTA for many years has worked with the college to provide a link to our industry and each year we sponsor the “Top Student Award” for the Motive Power, Truck and Coach program. This year the awards ceremony will be held virtually on June 2, 2021 for the many trades that Conestoga College provides training.
