At last year’s, BC Building Trades Convention, a series of videos were shown to the audience, featuring some of the more colourful retired members of the BC Building Trades Unions, recalling their working careers.

Our very own, Clive Bollerup, a retired Industrial Painter, helped to add some of that colour to the video featured here, with his reflections on working as an Industrial Painter in our Provinces early days. Check out this video as Clive extols the value of apprenticeship and learning a trade that you enjoy. Clive also recounts the many miles driven on virtually every Provincial highway while travelling to “every crummy little town” in pursuit of work.
