'Love locks' in Paris cause partial collapse of famous bridge
CBC News
Can there be such a thing as too much love in the city of light? Apparently, yes — at least when it comes to the tradition of leaving romantic "love locks" on Paris' Pont des Arts bridge. According to the Paris Mayor's office, the landmark city footbridge that links the Louvre museum to the Saint Germain neighborhood over the Seine river is starting to buckle under the weight of locks left behind by couples looking to declare their love.

City flood infrastructure 'bigger, better, stronger'
Calgary Herald
City officials say if high waters flood into Calgary again this spring damage would be significantly less thanks to six, now-complete, major mitigation projects along river banks. As part of a city tour for provincial officials, city staff showed off flood erosion control and mitigation work which saw riverbanks raised as much as two meters in some areas, along with more than 20,000 tonnes of jagged, quarry rock placed along the water's edge.

Enbridge Inc's $6.5-billion Northern Gateway oil pipeline seen poised for approval as Ottawa's deadline nears
Financial Post
Enbridge Inc. is poised to win government approval as soon as today for its proposed Northern Gateway pipeline to the Pacific coast, a major step for the project that still faces opposition from aboriginal and environmental groups. Prime Minister Stephen Harper's cabinet must decide by midnight Tuesday whether to approve the $6.5 billion pipeline, which would carry diluted bitumen from Alberta's oil sands across British Columbia. Canada's petroleum industry is seeking measures to move landlocked crude to offshore markets with another proposed pipeline, TransCanada Corp's, Keystone XL, in regulatory limbo in the U.S.

Infrastructure: A wise investment
Advisor
Infrastructure has low correlation to other asset classes, making it a promising investment.
