This week on TCR Express digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson about a recent webinar by the Vancouver Regional Construction Association that went into the sometimes complicated legal issues surrounding vaccine mandates and how companies have to be able to justify use of such mandates should they decide to do so.
Daily Commercial News staff writer Angela Gismondi has a recent interview with Gary McCluskie, a partner at Diamond Schmitt Architects in Toronto, about transforming his 400 square foot garage into an office when the pandemic hit in early 2020 and staff writer Don Wall spoke with Ontario Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development Monte McNaughton recently about the officially launch of Skilled Trades Ontario (STO). Melissa Young, executive director of the National Electrical Trade Council (NETC), will serve as the CEO of STO while labour and employment lawyer Michael Sherrard will be the chair of the board of directors.
