We will just have to wait and see. Quad was good to us while it lasted. Now we wait.

A little in Brampton? Suppliers say it is the busiest printing plant they have seen. They also have the new globe and Mail plant. No need for Concord and Aurora work can go to Owen Sound. Been through there on a tour a few years back. That is one big printing plant.
except they only have half of the building in brampton and 3 big, new presses to put somewhere that won't fit there.

Cautiously optimisitc here in Atlantic Canada. Transcon is a good company. I believe there's a strong possibility that Transcon recognizes what our plant can bring to their current platform and that in doing so will make things a win/win situation for almost everybody concerned. Of course...as with any other deal...duplication of responsibilities will be eliminated. Transcon has the opportunity to cherry pick the brightest and the best from their existing pool of employees and from the newly aquired Quad employees. The Dartmouth has strong ties to certain individuals at Transcon in Halifax...they're GM...Terry Mounce...used to own the Dartmouth plant and knows the people here are some of the best there is.

dear cautiousclay how can transcons buying the cdn assets be a good thing for you or any world-color plant. from the west to the east the only plant that "may" last 5 years is edmonton.vancouver is now quad that wouldn't last with the high dollar/ cdn tax law/and the union quad will open a plant in oregon with in 2 years. edmonton will get all their and vancouvers jobs {what idiot signed a 5 year deal not to print cdn work should be shot}. the ont. plants will close or be sold to st joes or worse quebecor. and you will be swallowed up by halifax

Hey St. Cloud, what is happening with the workers agreement in your plant? Heard that Dave Blaze and Ray Minturn were in a few weeks ago to talk to the committee. Just wondering how its going for you guys.
Nobody was there to meet with the committee...if they were there, maybe with the plant manager...

You are joining a great company. If you help in the integration you may end up with a great job and really enjoy working for Transcon. Unfortunately there are too many presses out there and not enough work. That means plants will be closed or merged with existing plants. You don't need PHD to figure out print is being hurt by on-line media, but for those willing to work hard and be positive, this may be the best thing for your career.

here here...well said...
I know alotta great people inside your company and all of them are very happy...
I hope you understand the turmoil within our company...after 4yrs of it...it tends to wear on you...don't let "seen it all's" obvious insecurity represent for us...you have purchased some top of the line individuals...unfortunately our company is also full of the other end of the spectrum...probably more so now than ever...But... I'm sure Transcon does their due diligence
the industry seems to be in warp drive as far as its evolution goes and who knows where it ends...but I do agree remaining positive and taking ownership of your work will lead the way...
great to be aboard...
by the way...

The existentialism questions.
Are the authors of these comments really who they claim to be?
Is the location showing really where the authors located?

An existential crisis is a stage of development at which an individual questions the very foundations of what’s true or false. This issue will shake the meaning, purpose and existence of this topic at the core of the philosophical school of existentialism.

Edmonton is the safest - with all the work in Calgary and Vancouver, Transcon cannot put any more on their presses. Vancouver would have been perfect - take all the overflow from Both Western Plants. Edmonton will see the gravy, for sure. And they will continue to print Canadian Tire and all of the Vancouver corporate work. The East is the place that will lose the most.
