    Happy New Year from my family and the staff of the Ontario Construction News. I hope that you, your family, co-workers and friends are all well and are taking time to reflect on what you are all thankful for in 2023.

    Two years ago at this time, I was living at Ronald McDonald House in Hamilton with my wife, while our newborn daughter was in the NICU at McMaster Children’s Hospital. We would there until mid-April. She spent her first three months on Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy to help with chronic lung infection, then came home with a G-Tube for formula feeding by pump until September.

    She has been a warrior since day one and been working hard with physio therapy since her Cerebral Palsy diagnosis in early 2022.

    I am thankful for some great clients who were flexible in meeting times and calls to work around my afternoon shifts at the hospital with my daughter. And I am thankful for a great team at work who offered support. Now looking ahead for 2022, I am hoping for an end to COVID-19 and things getting back to normal.

    What are you thankful for from 2022? What are your plans for 2023 and milestones your business will celebrate such as new products, anniversaries, new hires and completed projects?

    Contact me to provide coverage of your reasons to celebrate and the good news you have to share with the industry. Again, Happy New Year and Season’s Greetings from our team to yours.
