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 December 8th, 2014.
The B.C. Building Code is taking aim at energy efficiency. Staff writer Russell Hixson looks at how changes to the code starting December 19 will push for increased efficiency in residential homes.
Russell also has a story about a new digital tool that protects workers from silica dust, and we have another story about western Canadian labour leaders warning the governments of B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan not to water down workplace safety rules.
We also have a story from Daily Commercial News staff writer Andre Widjaja about a Canadian Apprenticeship Forum report that says parents still see university as preferable to trades training for their children.
Korky Koroluk has a column about heating efficiency in buildings, and this week's video looks at the succession planning session held at the Merit Contractors Association breakfast held recently at Buildex Calgary.
