Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson is back with digital media editor Warren Frey, and this week he’s got an interesting story to share about a new safety app released by the Saskatchewan Construction Association, along with some findings on infrastructure flood preparedness in Canada.
Warren discusses his recent story about opioid overdoses in the trades along with an initiative in Alberta to laser-scan and digitally preserve the remains of a 142-year-old church in Alberta.
Daily Commercial News national managing editor Vince Versace and Journal of Commerce and daily editor Lindsey Cole take a look at both our latest installment of the Building Canada 150 series and also some of the speakers who will attend CanadaData East, including keynote speaker Carl Bernstein, the Pulitzer Prize winning author and journalist.
Staff writer Don Wall also has an interview from the recent DCN editorial advisory board, where he talked to Association of Consulting Engineering Companies | Canada president and CEO John Gamble about infrastructure and other important matters to the Canadian construction industry. Vince rounds out the podcast with a look at the latest labour numbers, courtesy of ConstructConnect chief economist Alex Carrick.
