Shantel Lipp and
Carmen Duncan was seven years old when he experi-enced
his first taste of the road construction industry.
Though extremely light with his duties on the job
sites – a young Duncan could be seen sitting on his father’s lap while
the elder Duncan cleared land on nearby farmers’ fields – Carmen
Duncan was like a magnet on his father’s hip. Riding shotgun in
the truck for 12 hours, day after day, would take its toll on young
Carmen. He would often fall asleep at his dad’s side.
And if Peggy, Carmen’s mother, would ever lose track of her son,
she always had a strong sense of where he might be – sitting beside
his dad, watching him work.
“This is the life I know. There isn’t anything else I’d rather be do-ing,”
Carmen Duncan, along with his father Cameron and moth-er
Peggy, is one of the co-owners and co-operators of C. Duncan
Construction Ltd., which earlier this year celebrated its 50-year
The milestone occasion was a hit and attracted approximately 400
guests to the shop in Spy Hill. Saskatchewan Minister of Highways
Dave Marit was in attendance, along with local MLA Warren
Kaeding and Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association pres-ident
C. DUNCAN CONSTRUCTION LTD.
