2014 Conference Wrap Up
Good bye, Halifax! We'll miss you! Thanks to all who helped organize the YP Program and to all who took part. We couldn't have done it without you! We had three amazing discussion panels, toured the Alexander Keith's Brewery, heard some Halifax ghost stories, and experienced that famous east-coast hospitality at a number of different venues around town. Planning is already underway to make the YP program at CSCE 2015 in Regina even better! Make sure to watch this e-bulletin, the CSCE website, and our Facebook pages for conference photos, best paper winner announcements and additional conference wrap-up.

Toronto's Dufferin Street voted worst road in Ontario
For the third year in a row, Dufferin Street in Toronto has been voted the worst road in Ontario.
CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) released its annual Worst Roads list Wednesday morning with seven of the top 10 worst roads located in Toronto.
Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls, Burlington Street East in Hamilton and Carling Avenue in Ottawa round out the list.
Innovation can help to close the 'infrastructure gap'
Summer in the city seems to be set to one pervasive soundtrack: the grinding, jack-hammering, ear-splitting noise of construction. The warm months are a cold country’s chance to rebuild — roads are resurfaced, sewers repaired, water mains replaced — and we all bear the disruption in one way or another. But advances are being made that hold tremendous potential to help minimize the mounting costs municipalities are facing to renew their crumbling infrastructure.
Late spring may wreak havoc on infrastructure, Orlikow warns
Winnipeg's streets, back lanes and sidewalks took a beating this past winter, but Coun. John Orlikow says the city's infrastructure woes could worsen with the delayed spring thaw.
The River Heights-Fort Garry councillor says he's worried the late thaw could move up frost that has been buried deep underground thanks to the unusually cold winter, possibly making existing infrastructure problems worse.
