VIDEO: What's the "Big Story" for 2013?

To mark the beginning of 2013, the Journal of Commerce asked several construction leaders in the Lower Mainland what they thought the most significant issue would be for the industry in the coming year.

VRCA president Keith Sashaw noted that his membership is already commenting on increasing skill shortages, and said that he thinks a tightening labour pool will continue to be a pressing issue throughout the year.

AIBC executive director Michael Ernest said it will be important in the new year to move away from low-bid selection and for industry and government to consider alternative delivery systems.

ICBA president Philip Hochstein said the upcoming provincial election in British Columbia will be the deciding story of the new year, and would have far reaching effects on the construction industry and the BC economy.
