The Construction Record Podcast – Episode 287: Thornbury Acres and the CAF’s advocacy mandate

On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast, Daily Commercial News staff writer Angela Gismondi interviews Harley Valentine, a partner with Castlepoint Numa, the company behind the proposed Thornbury Acres development in Thornbury, Ont., a residential farm co-operative on large lots that will allow the condominium owners of each homestead to utilize agricultural and recreational common elements.

We also have an interview between staff writer Don Wall and France Daviault, the CEO of the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF), an organization that recently pledged it is expanding its advocacy efforts from women in construction to include other underrepresented communities.

Digital media editor Warren Frey and news editor Lindsey Cole also cover the latest Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce headlines, including the rebuilding of a landmark bascule bridge in Kingston, ON., the architects on the contentious Ontario Place project are being “named and shamed” by those opposed to the project and work has started on a $16 million honey bee research centre at the University of Guelph.

From the west, a legal challenge to the Roberts Bank Terminal project in Delta, B.C. by conservation groups represented by Ecojustice could mean delays for the massive project and a ‘thumbs up’ emoji has been found by a Saskatchewan court as a legally binding agreement on a contract, which could have wide-ranging applications for industry.

You can listen to The Construction Record on the Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce websites as well as on Apple PodcastsSpotify and Amazon Music’s podcast section.
