FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the B.C. Building Trades Council is calling for the scaling down of some major construction megaprojects in the province that house large numbers of workers in remote camps.

According to the Council, which represents 35,000 unionized construction workers, it has members at Site C and the LNG Canada project in Kitimat.

The Council says it wants proponents of these projects to prioritize the safety of workers and the integrity of the health care systems in the areas that serve them.
