YP Workshop "Influence Without Authority: Perceived Leadership"
April 8, 2014
This half-day professional development workshop will explore your
ability to influence. It does not require authority, tenure, or even a
particularly loud voice; it demands skill. This skill can be learned and
put to powerful effect but it requires patience and a long term
approach to everything we do. On this skill alone, reputations have been
built and dismantled, careers lost and found. Don't miss out! Register

Leadership in Sustainable Infrastructure/Leadership en infrastructures
Great Lakes shipping industry to inject $500 million into infrastructure
The Globe and Mail
The Great Lakes shipping industry is launching a major upgrade, buoyed by an improving economy.
Operators of the route that connects the heart of North America with the Atlantic Ocean and the world are embarking on an ambitious program designed to capitalize on free trade with Europe and rebounding U.S. business.
Waterloo holds off on infrastructure tax
Waterloo councillors want more information before committing to tax citizens extra to pay for infrastructure.
Councillors sent a report back to staff for more work instead of endorsing a motion to consider an infrastructure tax in the next budget process.
The report was put off until April.
Infrastructure plan much ado about too little, say cities
The federal government is coming under increasing scrutiny over the amount of money it has budgeted for infrastructure spending, as local and provincial governments get ready to apply for funding under a new federal plan.
Ottawa must improve plan for infrastructure funding
The much-desired increase in rail grain hauling will unfortunately coincide with the annual spring road ban season.
Municipal and provincial governments traditionally put weight restrictions on road traffic in the spring to limit damage as the frost melts and roadbeds become soggy.
Northwest Territories braces for devolution, seeks more infrastructure funding for resource development
The Northwest Territories is seeking permission to more than double its borrowing limit to $1.8-billion to fund infrastructure as the northern region prepares to take control of its natural resources.
The N.W.T. is set to get province-like control over mineral rights, including the ability to collect royalties on oil and gas production, under a pact called devolution that starts soon. Officials keen to accelerate drilling and mining activity in the north have appealed to Ottawa to boost the region’s borrowing limit from $800-million today to fund power lines and roadwork needed to support development.
