EllisDon has been awarded a $40 million Construction Management contract with the Department of National Defense for the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario. They are currently working on a complete upgrade of the mechanical systems throughout the teaching facility, six buildings in total, which includes classrooms and labs. Exterior cladding work, as part of the building envelope, will improve energy performance. One of the challenges of the project is working around the nuclear reactor located at the school. The project is scheduled for completion in June of 2013.

    I was priviledged to receive a copy of Monte Moffat’s book ‘Korean Memories’. As a Gunner, and more recently, as Canada’s Ambassador to both South Korea and North Korea, for three years I have had the honour to meet Canada’s Korean War veterans, including Colonel Moffat, during their annual pilgrimage to Korea and to listen to their Korea stories. ‘Korean Memories’ is a straightforward account not of the glory of war but of its stark humanity. Moffat’s anecdotes are sometimes funny, often moving and always insightful. A good read.
