25 YEARS AFTER THE TRAGEDY, POLYTECHNIQUE MONTRÉAL LAUNCHES THE ORDER OF THE WHITE ROSE AND THE WEEK OF THE WHITE ROSE
October 31st, 2014 - "We will continue building, but we will never forget," is the inspiring message from engineer Nathalie Provost, who was wounded on December 6, 1989, the day the formerly peaceful lives of Polytechnique students turned tragic.
Even though 25 years have passed since the Polytechnique massacre, when the lives of 14 young women were ended by bullets fired by a crazed gunman, the event will never fade into the past for the victims' families, nor for those who were wounded or the witnesses to this horrible tragedy.
25 ANS APRÈS LA TRAGÊDIE, POLYTECHNIQUE MONTRÉAL LANCE L'ORDRE DE LA ROSE BLANCHE ET LA SEMAINE DE LA ROSE BLANCHE
31 octobre 2014 -
« On continue de bâtir, mais on n'oublie pas », voilà le message inspirant que livre l'ingénieure Nathalie Provost, blessée le 6 décembre 1989 quand la vie, jusque-là paisible des étudiants de Polytechnique, a tourné au drame.
Même si 25 années se sont écoulées depuis la tragédie de Polytechnique, au cours de laquelle 14 jeunes femmes ont péri sous les balles d'un tueur fou, l'événement n'appartiendra jamais au passé pour les familles des victimes, les blessés et les témoins de cet horrible drame.

Earthquake-resistant pipes may bring leak-free L.A.
When the Northridge earthquake slammed Los Angeles two decades ago, it shattered more than 1,000 underground water lines.
Residents and firefighters went without essential water for up to one week and the pipes took years to fully fix at a cost of $41 million.
Now Los Angeles Department of Water and Power engineers think they may have found a seismic water pipe solution in Japan.
University of Alberta engineering students eye top 'Popsicle' bridge prize
Armed with nothing more than white glue and Popsicle sticks, a group of University of Alberta engineering students are hoping to break records in what could shape up to be a true battle of Alberta.
CN disputes its Quebec City bridge responsibilities
Daily Commercial News
Three levels of governments promised to invest $100 million to paint the rusting Pont du Québec bridge if Canadian National (CN) Railway matches the contribution, but the company says it is not their responsibility.
Engineering remains a male-dominated field
Women are no longer the head-turning novelty at the Polytechnique that they were in Thibodeau-DeGuire's day, when she had to dash downstairs between classes to use the secretaries’ washroom because there wasn't one for women on the floors where she attended lectures.
Government alone can't fix Canada's infrastructure deficit
The Globe and Mail
During recent municipal election campaigns in Ontario and British Columbia, one issue dominated debates from Toronto to Tofino: The need for infrastructure investment. From the hospitals that heal us to the roads and bridges that link us, there’s no question that Canada's infrastructure is in urgent need of renewal. And while a recent announcement by the federal government of $5.8-billion in additional infrastructure funding is welcome, much more needs to be done.
Ottawa has the fiscal room to invest in infrastructure
The International Monetary Fund's October 2014 economic outlook publication contains a chapter devoted to infrastructure policy and financing.
One of the points it makes is that investing in certain categories of infrastructure assets — particularly transportation, communications and energy infrastructure — can strengthen the foundations for long-term prosperity by expanding the economy's productive capacity and improving the competitive position of local industries engaged in global commerce.
Report: Infrastructure problems present in almost every Edmonton health facility
An Alberta Health Services review shows infrastructure problems exist at every Edmonton-area health facility. At some of the biggest hospitals, it appears those problems hamper staff’s ability to treat patients.
