You might have seen some activity around the Canadian Bank of Commerce NHS this spring. 

In advance of the 2019 work a temporary mesh cover was placed over the east and south facades to deter the nesting of swallows. Thanks to Wildstone Construction and Engineering who assisted the City of Dawson to install the mesh cover.  A special thanks to Mike Loiseau, Wildstone Site Superintendent at the Water Treatment Plant and Josh Wittmeier, Wildstone Lift Operator, for their expertise and generosity.
