Bob Taylor, Mayor of Colchester County and Larry Harrison, MLA (Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley) also reinforced the economic role of the plant.
Lafarge Eastern Canada CEO, Bruno Roux, thanked employees for their commitment to health and safety and emphasised Lafarge's pride in having contributed to building so many of the homes, buildings and roads that Atlantic Canadians use every day.
