Daniel Giroux has been president of Collège Boréal for scarcely two months now, but already he knows the job is always going to be a numbers game.
The college's new president and over 20 board members were in Timmins recent;y for Boréal's annual retreat, which included a tour of the Goldcorp Dome Mine.
And though the term "board retreat" may sound like a lot of fun and relaxation, that didn't quite seem to be the case.
The expansion of the Skyway Wastewater Treatment Plant is complete.
A grand re-opening ceremony, replete with area politicians, was staged recently at the plant, located in the vicinity of the Skyway bridge.
Upgrades and the expansion of wastewater treatment facility will improve the quality of water through the addition of a new sand filtration process, which will provide another level of treatment.
A new laboratory and regional operations facility also was built to facilitate plant operations and monitor water quality.

The Sudbury Star
Greater Sudbury received another infrastructure funding boost from the federal and provincial governments recently with the announcement of $14 million for water and wastewater projects in the city.
The joint announcement at Tom Davies Square, by Sudbury MP Paul Lefebvre, Nickel Belt's Marc Serre, Sudbury MPP Glenn Thibeault and Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger, followed agreements last April to fund the Maley Drive extension and August for transit improvements.
South Africa's Gold Fields confirmed recently that it had made three unsolicited bids in conjunction with Silver Standard Resources for Kirkland Lake Gold, which the Toronto-based miner rejected.
Gold Fields, the world's seventh-largest bullion producer with operations from Australia to Peru, also said it had recently sweetened the bid to about $1.4 billion, but it was still found unattractive by Kirkland Lake.
New Zealand is continuing to shake after being hit by a magnitude 7.5 earthquake, and there are fears the underground stress could set off even bigger tremors nearby.
"We currently calculate a... 32 per cent (probability) within the next 30 days," says John Ristau at GNS Science, New Zealand's geoscience research and consultancy firm. "An earthquake like this can increase the risk of a major earthquake nearby, although it can also decrease stress on a nearby fault and lessen the risk."
Scientists have found a key indicator in determining whether the presence of carbon, found in the Earth's mantle, is derived from continental crust — a step toward better understanding the history of crustal formation on Earth's surface and the rate at which tectonic plates have moved throughout geologic time, which can be linked to the cooling of Earth's mantle.
Results of a new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience show evidence of varying ratios of boron isotopes in igneous rocks, known as carbonatites, of different ages.
