Bleeds Black Award
The purpose of the “Bleeds Black” Award is to highlight the passion and commitment of individuals to the superiority of asphalt as the pavement of choice in Ontario. OAPC credits the award to past director Tim Fawcett, who, in 2012, was describing and individual and said “his passion and commitment for all things asphalt is so great that when cut, he bleeds black”. After the discussion the idea for the "Bleeds Black" award was born.
