On this mid-week episode of the Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey checks in with Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson for a look at some of the issues he covered at the 2022 Council Of Forest Industries conference held last week in Vancouver. Some of the key takeaways were the supply chain and supply and demand issues the sector went through during COVID and currently with disruption due to the ongoing Russian war in Ukraine.
Warren also spoke to Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce daily news editor Lindsey Cole about staff writer Don Wall’s ongoing coverage of ICI sector labour negotiations, which remain fluid. She also mentioned staff writer Angela Gismondi’s look as part of Construction Safety Week and Mental Health week at a project where George Brown College students impacted by mental health issues are helping to build cabins at — a wellness retreat to help others going through similar experiences.
