The Construction Record Podcast

Jun 30, 2017

This week it’s an all Canadian podcast, as we look at our nation’s most iconic construction projects as part of our Building Canada 150 series and in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.

Journal of Commerce staff writer Russell Hixson discusses the history behind the Lion’s Gate Bridge in Vancouver, and digital media editor Warren Frey talks about his recent story focusing on the sacrifices of Chinese immigrants who worked on Canada’s first megaproject, the transcontinental railroad.

National editor Vince Versace also talks to Daily Commercial News staff writers Don Wall and Angela Gismondi about Expo 67 and the Parliament buildings in Ottawa.

Vince wraps up the podcast with a look at a recent story from ConstructConnect’s chief economist Alex Carrick about Canadian housing starts. Happy 150th, Canada!
