TCR Express: August 4, 2021

In this week’s episode of TCR Express digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson about a B.C. union’s concerns over the lack of a community benefit agreement for a hospital megaproject as well as a story he’s working on about the new Flames arena project in Calgary, Alta. 

Daily Commercial News staff writer Angela Gismondi has a story about a new report from Cardus about the Region of Waterloo saving an average of 14 per cent in municipal construction project costs which represents an estimated savings of $24-million in the two years since the passage of Bill 66 in the Ontario legislature. DCN staff writer Don Wall is looking at how Quebec City based Polycor, the world’s largest natural stone quarrier, plans to transition to carbon neutral by 2025, five years ahead of the goal set by the American Institute of Architects.
