Nearly 90 members of the Ontario Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (OSSGA) attended the group’s 2017 Operations Tour last week in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The event was hosted by OSSGA staff, including Norm Cheesman, executive director, and Julie Harrington, manager of training and development. Taking place at the Ottawa Marriott, the event kicked off with a networking reception. The next morning, OSSGA members filled two buses to visit a variety of sites, including the Lafarge Bearbrook Quarry, R.W. Tomlinson Moodie Quarry and Thomas Cavanagh Almonte operation. In addition, Dennis Gratton from the City of Ottawa spoke about the Ottawa Light Rail Transit project.
