    BC’s Looming Skilled Labour Shortage - By Darryl Greer, The Tyee
    'There's so much work there and I just hope our B.C. government will realize that they have to put some more money into the trades and the apprenticeship programs and give it the shot in the arm it needs,' says Gillis, an electrician for over 25 years.
