Construction company logos have been erected at the Big D Construction site in a Quebec town, as the province prepares to reopen the construction site after it was shut down for a week due to a massive wildfire.
The company is owned by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.
and is working to start construction on the $3-billion project.
Construction was supposed to start next month.
The logo is part of a partnership between the company and Quebec’s public service.
“The logo has been created by a team of designers, engineers, engineers and other individuals from the Canadian Natural Reserves, who have worked closely with the City of Grande Prairie,” said spokesperson Isabelle Dufour.
“This is an honour to collaborate with the Big Dog Construction Team, and to continue to help them construct a new home for the people of Grande Rouge.”
Grande Prairie Mayor Kevin Soderstrom said it’s not a problem for the municipality to have a logo on the site because the project is being funded through provincial government funding.
“We don’t need to put any more money into Grande Prairie’s infrastructure,” he said.
“In fact, we’ve already done that.”
The town is located on the shores of Lake Ontario in northern Quebec.
Grande Prairie was hit by heavy wildfires in October and is home to about 2,000 residents.
Grande Rouge Mayor Kevin St. Laurent said the project will bring jobs and economic development to the community.
“There’s no doubt that we have a great community here, a very supportive community and the people are proud to be part of this project,” he told CBC News.
