Sam Sadeghi’s career seems to be on a trajectory that only goes up. The electrical engineer has been working full-time in his field since graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Ryerson University in 2004. He continued to work full-time while pursuing a master’s in power electronics, which he earned from Ryerson in 2008. The only time he didn’t work was when he took a four-month leave in 2009 to take core courses for his master’s in business administration at Wilfrid Laurier University.

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.
