It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of Thomas (Tom) Muldoon, past President & CEO of E.B. Horsman & Son, on Nov. 3rd, 2017. Tom suffered a prolonged fight with lymphoma and needless to say, we will all miss him more than words can express. He was not just our President but our good friend as well.
For those of you that did not have the opportunity to know Tom, he was a feisty Irish Canadian who cared passionately for everyone at E.B. Horsman & Son, our electrical industry and the Horsman family. His caring nature, dignified presence and empowering approach to business helped everyone he worked with be just a little bit better every day.
Tom was appointed as President of E.B. Horsman & Son (EBH) in 1994 by George Horsman before becoming the company's only non-family partner in its 100+ year history. Tom played an instrumental role in defining our culture of excellence and modernizing EBH for a globally competitive environment.
"To me, and many others at EBH, he was so much more than the President of our company; he was a true mentor and friend," said Tim Horsman, President & CEO of E.B. Horsman & Son. "We were blessed to have had him take care of the company for many years and help us set the foundation upon which we grow today."

B.C. is looking to improve workplace supports, services and practices for women in the trades now that a labour market research project has been completed.
The Women in Trades labour market project includes feedback and recommendations from employers, tradespeople, unions, the Industry Training Authority (ITA), WorkSafeBC and other stakeholders from around the province.
The West Kootenay EcoSociety is celebrating the first signatory to their 100 per cent Renewable Kootenays initiative.
The Village of Slocan is the fifth community in Canada, and the first in the Kootenays, to commit to transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy by mid-century, specifically in heating/cooling, transportation and electricity. They join B.C. municipalities of Victoria, Vancouver, Saanich, and Oxford County in Ontario, in providing the leadership needed to make critical changes to our energy systems.
At a keynote address to attendees at a recent sustainable energy conference, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson outlined the city's progress toward its greenest city ambitions.
In 2011, Vancouver city council introduced its goal of becoming the world's greenest city by 2020. While that may have seemed a long way in the future then, the deadline is fast approaching. While the city is not yet the top of any list, Robertson is hopeful.
FortisBC continues to look at adding a new power line that would cut through Ladner.
A FortisBC spokesperson said they heard the feedback from the community and are committed to making changes to the proposed route to minimize impacts as much as possible. Fortis will keep the community updated as the project moves along.

Despite the City of Vancouver's war on natural gas, the city and FortisBC, B.C.'s natural gas utility, have reached an agreement to work together on projects that will reduce Vancouver's carbon footprint.
The city and FortisBC recently announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding to co-operate on a number projects, including incentives to switch city vehicles from diesel and gasoline to cleaner burning natural gas.
B.C. Transit will launch a trial run for a 40-foot electric bus to drive the streets of Victoria for six months starting in January 2018.
The battery-powered bus will run on a 324 kilowatt-hour battery, enabling it to travel up to 250 kilometres on a single charge. A recharging station at the Victoria Regional Transit Centre on Gorge Road, will be set up to juice the battery overnight, and is estimated to take somewhere between three and four hours.
