    It's like on facebook when people write vague a cage status in hopes that someone asks them about it.

    Well, it's great for the 50 Chinese tradesmen who are getting the contract to rebuild #7 blast furnace. It's going to be a solid four years worth of work for them!

    This is, one would surmise free enterprise at work. Something we cherish and hold up for the oppressed to wonder at. The non locals would likely be on contract as a sub trade and work for a month for what a local would want per day. We as private citizens do this on a daily basis and beat our breast proclaiming it as our right to "Save a buck" yet should a company do the same all cry foul. Nuh uh, can't do that, double standards are ugly and irritating when it is you on the receiving end. Now, were our hands clean we could belittle even possibly shame Essar into doing the right thing but alas the reverse is true.

    I'm not too disgruntled. I'm close enough to enjoy the carcinogens that will be blown around by the rebuild, so all in all, it's a win-win!

    Are you saying the Chinese will not be held to the same health and safety designation or they will circumvent them or you are in a position in which imbibing said carcinogens is common place? I did in years past enter 4 gate and work at the coke ovens only to come out to witness all the crap on my vehicle, so if that be your point I can attest.

    The story was published in the "Northern Business" paper, which gets distributed between Timmins and Thunder Bay. They specifically stated '50 Chinese tradesmen', and 'a four-year project'.

    They are planning a rebuild of #7 furnace? I thought they were going lick and stick patches on that sucker until it exploded. :-) My father worked for Jadco (spelling?) on it's rebuild in early 80's. I worked in the Steep Plant for 10 years.. and I couldn't wait to get out of there. :-)

    One more reason why the MTU needs to expand the list on this page to include way more compulsary trades: http://www.collegeoftrades.ca/about/trades-in-ontario

    They are working on it, just going to be a slow process.

    They could build a brand new blast furnace in well under four years. If I remember correctly, the last rebuild in 1995 took 6 weeks.

    The operation of the blast furnace requires three stoves, so only one can be taken out of service at a time.

    It takes one year to build a stove, so there promises to be at least four years of work for those tradespeople, in addition to a couple of years of work constructing throughwalls on the millís coke battery.

    Stenta said the Chinese firm will be hiring about 50 tradespeople to undertake the work. The company will be setting up a Canadian office and launching an extensive recruiting campaign this fall.

    “They have people they could bring with them, but ideally, we want to hire Canadians for those jobs,” Stenta said. “So they’ll be embarking on a campaign shortly to try to find those tradespeople.”
    Says they could bring them, but Essar wants Canadians. We'll see.
