On this episode of the Construction Record Podcast digital media editor Warren Frey is joined by Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson and Daily Commercial News staff writer Angela Gismondi for a look at some of the big construction stories of the week, including a new study with several different proposals to extend rapid transit over or under the Burrard Inlet to connect Vancouver and North Vancouver.
Warren also looks into a story he recently wrote about WorkSafeBC’s recommendations for coping with unprecedented air quality issues in the Lower Mainland as wildfires from the U.S. blow smoke over the border and add to the health concerns of workers on sites already dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Angela also gives a few details about a story she’s working on about an Etobicoke project designed and developed by an all-female team.
Angela also has an interview with our own ConstructConnect economist Alex Carrick about the upcoming CanaData conference which will go virtual this year, spanning three days and touching on topics such as technology, demographics, the economy and the effect of COVID-19 on all these factors and the construction industry in general. Keep checking both the Journal of Commerce and the Daily Commercial News for coverage of the CanaData conference which goes from Sept 29. To Oct. 1.
