Brocollini launched the construction of the distribution centre for Amazon in Ottawa on Monday. The new facility will be more than one million square feet and will be the largest industrial facility ever built in the area. The centre is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019, and will create more than 650 full time jobs once the facility is operational. The ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, the Honourable Jim Wilson, Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, and Jim Watson, the Mayor of Ottawa.
