User fees touted to help cities repair aging infrastructure
Canadian cities will have to embrace user fees to keep up with the costs of infrastructure, according to a University of Calgary report released recently.
Municipalities, facing increasingly high bills to repair and replace aging roads, bridges and water systems, are too reliant on provincial and federal government subsidies.
Bridging North America's border infrastructure gap
Twenty years after NAFTA, the failure of member countries to invest in adequate border infrastructure is catching up with us. To reverse the drag on our competitiveness, North America needs an infrastructure bank.
Ontario labour says infrastructure needs commitment
Daily Commercial News

Infrastructure spending soars in Atlantic Canada
Investment in major infrastructure projects is at an all-time high in Atlantic Canada.
Yet, development in the future remains uncertain, says the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council, which released its annual inventory of major, current projects today.
It finds there are 439 projects being worked on. Even better, those represent $122 billion in investment, up 7 per cent over last year.
Traffic takes off through $295-million tunnel
For more than six years, Coun. Jim Stevenson sent letters to countless politicians, led hundreds of presentations and met with officials anywhere he could to garner support for a project he believed was important for a growing Calgary.
There were days he believed the whole thing would fall apart, as he faced opposition from council colleagues and struggled to convince provincial counterparts to see the value an airport tunnel would bring to the city.

Honouring Canada's exceptional engineers
Canada's engineering profession is proud to once again honour the accomplishments of remarkable professional engineers during the Engineers Canada Awards Gala on Saturday evening at the Hilton Saint John Hotel.
The Gold Medal Award is the engineering profession's highest honour, presented for achievement and distinction in engineering. This year's Gold Medal Award recipient is Michael V. Sefton, P.Eng., FRCS. Professor Sefton of the University of Toronto is being honoured for his groundbreaking work in tissue engineering. He was the first to recognize the importance of combining living cells with synthetic polymers to create 'artificial' organs and tissues. His current research into the creation of modular tissue components seeks to create cardiac muscle to treat heart failure and pancreatic tissue for diabetes, among other possibilities.
