2020 Canada’s Most Driven Winners.

Jean-Guy Laflamme

He’s the hero of the wheel.

When Jean-Guy’s daughter nominated him, she talked about his passion, his 30-year accident-free record and all he taught her about trucks. But she was proudest of his commitment to driving so Canadians could have the supplies they needed to stay at home.

She drives to save lives.

Janet is passionate about hauling pharmaceuticals. Throughout the pandemic, she put herself at risk to make sure Canadians could get vital medications. Janet says she’s happy to be a quiet support in our healthcare system, but we know she deserves recognition for all she does. Thank you, Janet, for driving for a better world.

Vijayan Ratnam

His small acts make a difference.

Vijayan is the type of person who directs people as they back out, shunts units when needed, and trains newly licenced drivers during his personal time. Vijayan was nominated because of his safe and reliable driving, but he won because of his willingness to go above and beyond to help others—in big and small ways.

He hit the ground driving.

When Branislav came to Canada in 2013, he brought his work ethic with him. With a senior mechanic and international trucking background, he trained to learn the Canadian transport industry. After driving all over North America, Branislav started his own company, becoming a job creator, and earned a reputation for safety and reliability.

2. Prize

2.1 Prizes: Four (4) prizes will be awarded. Each Prize is $2,000 cash (“Prize”).

A panel of judges (see Rules 2.3 and 2.4) will select the finalists from Eligible Drivers, who will then have a chance to win a Prize. Each Prize must be accepted as awarded. No alternatives, substitution or transfers of the Prizes will be allowed.

2.2 Odds: The odds of being selected to win a Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period and on the selection of Eligible Drivers by the panel of judges (see Rules 2.3 and 2.4).

2.3 Judging: A panel of judges consisting of four (4) Suncor employees will select potentially winning entries based upon the character and reputation of Eligible Drivers nominated as described in the nomination form, including, but not limited to, his/her record and deeds as a professional truck driver, safe and reliable driving record, community involvement, and enthusiasm for Petro-Pass. Suncor may contact Cardholders to validate and confirm any information provided on an Eligible Driver’s entry, and may disqualify any Eligible Driver should the information presented for an Eligible Driver be determined by Suncor (as through the panel of judges), acting reasonably, to be false or different than what Suncor determines to be the correct information following Suncor’s review and investigation. Judging will be completed by June 2, 2020.

Each judge will rank their top six (6) Eligible Driver entries from all of the eligible entries received during the Contest Period. The top four (4) Eligible Drivers with the highest rankings from the judges will be the selected Eligible Drivers to be eligible to win a Prize, subject to Rule 2.4. Once an Eligible Driver has been determined by the panel of judges to be ranked in the top four (4) entries from the Contest and the information in the Eligible Driver’s entry is determined to be correct, and the Eligible Driver has met all of the requirements of the Contest under the Rules, Suncor may award a Prize to each of the top four (4) Eligible Drivers and will then announce all Prize winners from the Contest at 5 pm on Monday, June 15, 2020 at 2489 North Sheridan Way, Mississauga, Ontario. 

Winners may be featured as part of future Petro-Pass marketing materials in 2020-2021, as determined by Suncor. If, after being selected as a potential winner by the panel of judges, Suncor determines that the information submitted in the entry of a selected Eligible Driver is incorrect or false, Suncor is entitled to remove the Eligible Driver’s entry into the Contest, and the initially selected Eligible Driver will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited, and such selected Eligible Driver will have no further recourse towards Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest. The next Eligible Driver, as determined by the panel of judges, will be notified of such Eligible Driver being selected.

Each selected Eligible Driver will be contacted by email by a Suncor representative. At least three (3) attempts to contact the selected Eligible Driver by email will be made within the fourteen (14) days following the winner selection. If Suncor is unable to contact the selected Eligible Driver within fourteen (14) days following the judging, the next highest ranked Eligible Driver, as determined by the Suncor judges, will be notified of such Eligible Driver being selected and the initially selected Eligible Driver will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited, and that selected Eligible Driver will have no further recourse towards Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.

There is a limit of one (1) prize per Eligible Driver for the Contest.

Subject to Rule 2.1, no substitution for, or transfer of Prizes, will be allowed. The selected Eligible Driver will have seven (7) days to return the Declaration and Release form upon receipt.

If the selected Eligible Driver does not do so, the next Eligible Driver, as determined in the sole discretion of the panel of judges, will be notified of such Eligible Driver being selected and the initially selected Eligible Driver will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited and that selected Eligible Driver will have no further recourse towards Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.
