I don't know about now, but many years ago a first year apprentice made 50% of a journeyman and was more or less a helper learning the ins and outs.
If they got lucky they would sort of get adopted by a journeyman as their persional assistant and learn the skills quicker and more efficient.
The second and third years would get paid more, develop their skills further and have more responsibi.lity

Do not care if you believe me or not
It is quite possible that you saw them pounding "logs" into the ground but it was more likely for shoring then structural support.

They only put them where the tower sits. Then brought in fill and then a specialized waterproofing material for the whole site and a few meters up the sides. Then came the rebar and the concrete slab.

Probably for the elevator core, I believe they had some very robust water issues at this site and actually poured an active pump (water) into the pour to maintain the levels.

Would be great if someone could help pay this fine, to lessen the burden on the family.

The MP for the Salmon Arm area should be stepping up to sort this out.

What a complete joke that fine is. The whole Covid issue with travelling …tell me it’s not about money to the govt of Canada. Absolutely brutal and disheartening to read this .

Question. Saw a clip where there were 4 bouquet wraps of flowers. Considering that 1 civilian died - is it just me - or is that an insult to an innocent bystander?

You would have to ask the person/s who put it there. It is an expression of the grieving process, don't make it ugly when it doesn't concern you.

Wait.......so no one is grieving the innocent civilian? Just the workers? Is that right? Is there a gofundme for his family? Maybe Castanet can find this out and report on that.

Could be a co-worker or friend of the four workers that died.
