Journal of Commerce Preview for the week of June 2nd, 2014

In this week's preview, we look at some of the stories we'll be covering in the Journal of Commerce for the week of June 2nd, 2014.

A heavy equipment training facility is meeting increasing demand with very little government funding. Correspondent Jean Sorensen takes a closer look at the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 115 training site in Maple Ride, B.C., which has operated for over 40 years and has trained thousands of apprentices and journeymen.

Staff writer Russell Hixson has a story about efforts in Alberta and British Columbia to crack down on speeders in construction zones, and Russell also has a story about the B.C. government bringing training to remote areas to meet increasing demands for skilled labour.

Correspondent Peter Caulfield looks at a new asphalt mix that could address potholes in the city of Winnipeg in an environmentally friendly manner, and Peter has another story about smart sensors on bridges.

Korky Koroluk has a column about three audacious Chinese megaprojects, including a high speed train from Beijing to Alaska, and this week’s video interview is with green construction expert Joanne Sawatzky of Light House Sustainable Building Centre, who spoke at the Vancouver Regional Construction Association’s recent Construction Learning Forum.
