Daily Commercial News national editor Vince Versace and daily editor Lindsey Cole bring you the latest in construction this week, including our own new Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce websites! Vince and Lindsey also cover the Construct conference in Ontario, and discuss DCN staff writer Angela Gismondi's interview with McLean Taylor/Stone Town Construction Ltd. vice president Michael Doupe about continued concerns in the Ontario construction industry surrounding Waterloo Regional Council’s tendering practices.

We also have an interview from our recent editorial advisory board meeting with Mierau Contractors president Kevin Mierau and British Columbia Construction Safety Association executive director Mike McKenna about a new tool for measuring silica levels in the workplace. Silica is rapidly being recognized as a workplace hazard on the level of asbestos, and the new tool can also be adapted to deal with other workplace safety issues.
