Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Unfortunately, both LNG Canada (which is considering a $40 billion LNG plant in Kitimat) and Woodfibre (with a possible $1.6 billion project in Squamish) claim that LNG steel modules simply cannot be produced in Canada.

So they want the federal government to exempt it from anti-dumping duties of up to 45.8 per cent on fabricated steel components from China.

But Canadian steel fabricators can build those modules — and create good jobs and investment here in B.C.  And we will do the job right the first time, something that Chinese steel has repeatedly failed at.
