DISTRICT D10, FORMED in 2016 to represent 11 cement locals in Eastern Canada, held its first steward training session last year, with Ontario lodges meeting at Local 128 in Toronto and Nova Scotia and New Brunswick lodges meeting at the Hampton Inn in Moncton, New Brunswick. IR Richard MacIntosh conducted level 1 and level 2 steward classes at both locations. D10 BM-ST Tony Andrade also participated in the training.
Andrade said that a district lodge for Eastern Canada had been a goal for him and others for a number of years. He credited IR Rob Lauzon (now retired) with bringing the district to life. “Rob was instrumental in the whole thing.”
