Want to get involved with the CSCE but don't know how? Why not become a member of the newly created CSCE Technical Publications Committee?
CSCE
The goal of the Technical Program Committee is to develop strategies and activities to improve members’ opportunities to publish and access research material. A secondary goal, and in many ways, more important is to make the general public aware of what great civil engineering research is being done in Canada. For this to happen, we need more members from industry and consulting, at all experience levels.

So think about it and if interested, contact Linda Newton for more information.

Vous voulez vous impliquer dans la SCGC mais ne savez pas comment? Pourquoi ne pas devenir membre du Comité des publications techniques de la SCGC nouvellement créé?
AGCA
The but du Comité des publications techniques est d'élaborer des stratégies et de développer des activités afin d'améliorer les opportunités qu'auront les membres de la SCGC de publier et de consulter des travaux de recherche. Un objectif secondaire, et à bien des égards, encore plus important est de sensibiliser le grand public au travail de recherche en génie civil qui se fait au Canada. Pour ce faire, nous avons besoin de plus de membres des secteurs de l'industrie et de la consultation à tous les niveaux d'expérience.

Alors pensez-y et si vous êtes intéressés, veuillez contacter Linda Newton pour plus d'informations.

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.
Daily News
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.

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 Record
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.
