Comments by Fred Zweep:
"I do not deem the award presentation to be that of my singular success;
rather it's about the corner stone of success based on the collaborative
efforts of Vedder Transport Ltd. and our partners FortisBC, Peterbilt Pacific
and Westport Innovations which has lead to the successful delivery of the
Vedder Transportation Groups Natural Gas Project!"

Driving Fleet of Vedder Transport Ltd. who operate our fleet of 50 Liquefied
Natural Gas Class 8 Vehicles day in and day out, as without their ongoing
vested interest and dedication to this project and that of the Vedder
Transport Ltd. Implementation group, Peterbilt Pacific, FortisBC and the
entire Westport Innovations team my vision for Natural Gas LNG Operated Class
8 Tractors in Western Canada would not have been achievable"

unwavering support, guidance and shared vision from conception to integration
of my vision for Natural Gas technology"
