This week on TCR Express, digital media editor Warren Frey and Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson look at some of the top stories in western Canada, including large cost overruns on the Trans Mountain project which Russell has sourced documentation on and is pinpointing what aspects of the project led to higher costs.
Russell also discusses the cancelled Burrard Skytrain station upgrades and the news that Woodfibre is near to a final investment decision, which could come this year. If approved the project in Squamish. B.C. would be one of the biggest in the province’s history.
Daily Commercial News staff writer Angela Gismondi has a story about the Toronto Community Benefits Network asking Metrolinx to confirm its commitment to community benefits on future transit projects in the Greater Toronto Area and Daily Commercial News staff writer Don Wall looks at collective bargaining in the ICI sector in Ontario.
