Journal of Commerce Update for the week of December 16th, 2013

In this week's update, we look at some of the stories we'll be covering in the Journal of Commerce for the week of December 16th, 2013.

Richard Gilbert has a story about how Shell Canada is expanding an oilsands project near Fort McMurray but local First Nations disagree with the environmental assessment process.

The federal government says expansion of the Jackpine Mine will cause “adverse environmental circumstances” but in this case these effects are justified. The Athabasca Chipewan say they are frustrated with the actions of the government.

Correspondent Shannon Moneo has a story about a project involving both Alberta employers and trade unions that links wage increases to the price of oil.

Daily Commercial News staff writer Patricia Williams has an article about a Building Information Modeling guide drawing on American and Canadian expertise.

This week’s feature video goes to the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s welding department, which has just undergone a $2.7 million upgrade to its HVAC and ventilation systems.
