As you scroll down the newsletter, you will find: a story and interview on CBC's Power and Politics featuring yours truly and an article by the Daily Commercial News - both on the impact of steel tariffs on construction and housing; RESCON's Andrew Pariser and Amina Dibe combine for two blogs - cannabis in construction, and our growing relationship with Humber College; Dibe goes solo to write about RESCON's government relations initiatives; lastly, Andy Manahan of infrastructure advocacy group RCCAO pens an op-ed for the Toronto Star on why the Ford government's gas tax cut could be a smart move.
Thanks for reading!
