The Keynote speech by Minister of Labour, the Honourable Harry Bains touched on the history and importance of the Building Trades in building BC. Minister Bains reiterated Premier Horgan’s position on Project Labour Agreements that include an emphasis on local procurement and the use of Red Seal trades and apprenticeship opportunities. Minister Bains went on to say that government infrastructure will be tendered and awarded on the “best bid” not the “low bid” as is current practice.
