Transport des marchandises dangereuses - Le silence radioactif d'Ottawa

Wed, 2013-08-14 09:35

La catastrophe de Lac-Mégantic a ravivé les inquiétudes liées au projet canado-américain de transport d'uranium sous forme liquide. Devant les craintes soulevées, le gouvernement Harper réplique que l'entente vise à " réduire la menace que pose le terrorisme international". Mais il ne dit mot des conséquences possibles, un silence radioactif qui ne rassure pas les experts, étant donné les carences de Transports Canada en matière de transport des marchandises dangereuses.

Fixing the other health care issue

Tue, 2012-09-25 11:26

Despite high per-capita spending, health care in Canada consistently underperforms, according to the Commonwealth Fund, which tracks indicators for accessibility, timeliness and outcomes across a number of developed countries. The system that is straining to meet demand today will face an even higher burden in the years ahead, as the population ages. A number of Canadian business schools are looking to meet this challenge by educating future health care managers to bring new perspectives to old problems.
