At long last, it appears that TMX will proceed. The federal government has taken the additional time to deliver on its commitments for environmental protections and meaningful indigenous consultations. There is a reason for optimism that work will begin this construction season.
“The Building Trades of Alberta Locals will be working with our contractors to bid on available TMX opportunities as well as on new TMX opportunities as they arise,” says Terry Parker, Executive Director of the Building Trades of Alberta. “We also anticipate work in other areas.
