New Year’s Tribute
By Barb Woodward, President of Woodward Publishing Group
With the advent of news and information transmitted across nations and continents in mere seconds, it brings home the reality that we truly live in a global community. Faraway events enter our living rooms and offices shortly after they occur. Political turmoil, terrorism, war, and this year especially, the proliferation of reported assaults against women by influential persons, capture our attention as soon as they light up our laptops and phones.
It can be easy to forget that in the face of such damage and disappointment we have much to be grateful for. We live in a country that, for all its shortcomings, is still one of the best places in the world to live and thrive in both our personal and professional lives.
Here at Woodward Publishing, we too have our gratitude list. As publisher I have been fortunate to have on hand a team of professional and dedicated employees and contributors who bring their particular brand of expertise each month to our publications – Ontario Trucking News, Western Trucking News and Eastern Trucking News. We also have on board loyal customers who advertise with us, as well as featured clients whose corporate profiles often appear on the front pages of our magazines.
As we move into the new year I am happy to announce our progress in the development of our Vocational Truck & Trailer Journal (VT&TJ) found in each edition. Here you will find articles, press releases and insightful information serving the logging, construction, and off road market. Stay tuned to each edition as we bring more relevant information about this sector, so vital to the importance of the transportation industry.
As the New Year dawns we at Woodward Publishing are more determined than ever to provide you, our readers and customers, with the best in industry content and the best in advertising opportunities.
On behalf of my staff I wish you all good things in the new year!
