Legionella pneumophila is one of the few bacteria that can be considered as a genuine environmental pathogen. Whilst most infections of hydric origins result from the faecal pollution of a stream or ground water, it is indeed not the case for Legionella pneumophila since this bacterium can be found in an ubiquitous manner in fresh water where it can survive temperature variations from 5. Consequently, any machinery or device using a water supply can be colonized with Legionellae , especially if the water temperature is high as it favor its growth: cooling towers, plumbing, water-heaters and hot tubs are few examples. Between July 18th and October 8th, , cases of legionellosis have been reported in the Quebec City area, 14 of which being sadly fatal. This extended delay between first case notification and resolution of crisis has enticed the media to spread messages, sometimes contradictory, and to give the floor to pseudo-experts who, by proposing, for example, source of outbreak that were totally improbable in these circumstances, needlessly alarmed and increase the panic response of the population Pelchat et al. It was people living in or frequently visiting the St-Roch and Limoilou districts lower part of the city that were contaminated by this strain of Legionella and, from the first notified cases, the cooling towers found in the area were suspected of harboring the pathogenic strain Isabelle Goupil Sormany, These towers are essentially heat exchangers between the water and ambient air. The report from the DSP published after the Quebec City legionellosis outbreak Isabelle Goupil Sormany, is a precious information source when trying to explain the extended delay between the first cases and the resolution of the crisis.
December 19, Two representatives from Atlantic Moves attended Parcours Danse in Laval, Quebec, the annual dance conference hosted by La danse sur les routes de Quebec. Tim Yerxa Fredericton Playhouse had this to say:. Each company presented excerpts of work followed by a moderated discussion with the choreographers. A work in progress was also presented by PPS Danse in a session in which the creators presented their research and process in a demonstration.
Lee and I also had the opportunity to see the latest work by Rubberband Dance in a public performance at the 5ieme Salle at the Place des Arts. The meetings also included valuable networking and social time to connect and reconnect with our colleagues from Quebec and the Quebec dance milieu.
Such ice breakers could take various forms, including a speed-dating paradigm in which In , Brainhack’s collaborative ethos was integrated, eliciting a strong, positive response from Montréal, Québec, Canada (49).
The overall feedback was resoundingly positive, meaning that the event will be held again in in Berlin and, for the first time, in Hamburg as well. Mohamed Gamal, Director of the Egyptian Tourism Authority, gave an overview of the current situation in Egypt and measures being implemented by the Egyptian government to get tourism back on track.

Pia de Grahl in turn talked about encounters along the Baltic and North Sea coast: for instance, at its northernmost point, Denmark is the only place where one can be present in both countries at the same time. To the west of Germany is Flanders, which in will be focussing on the anniversary of the First World War. Christopher Philipp also gave a presentation on the Rubens exhibition in Brussels and Antwerp.

The economy in Montreal, Quebec, Canada is booming. The Greater Montreal region — a global hub for aerospace and video game industries, among other sectors — has so many job openings in high-tech industries and IT that local talent simply cannot fill the positions. The organization and its provincial and local partners are taking Quebec-based employers overseas — often to French-speaking European countries with high unemployment — to target the top candidates for in-person interviews during two- to four-day international talent recruitment missions, which have been wildly successful.
Since , these kinds of international recruiting missions have enabled roughly 70 businesses in the region to meet more than 10, — yes, 10,! Talent Montreal hosts two overseas missions each year, with massive response. In June, a mission to Brussels received 13, applicants, and companies met with 2, candidates during the three-day recruitment mission. Typically, employers — half from the Greater Montreal area and half from throughout the province of Quebec — participate in these missions.

Quebec employees, working full or part time, benefit from the following statutory holidays s. However, if an employee is required by his employer to work on a statutory holiday, due to the nature of the activities of the business, then in addition to receiving his typical wages for the work completed, the employee will be entitled to the abovementioned indemnity or to a compensatory holiday of one 1 day s.

If he opts for a compensatory holiday, the employee must take his leave in the three 3 weeks prior to or following the holiday.

Brainhack events offer a novel workshop format with participant-generated content that caters to the rapidly growing open neuroscience community. Including components from hackathons and unconferences, as well as parallel educational sessions, Brainhack fosters novel collaborations around the interests of its attendees. Here we provide an overview of its structure, past events, and example projects.
Additionally, we outline current innovations such as regional events and post-conference publications. Through introducing Brainhack to the wider neuroscience community, we hope to provide a unique conference format that promotes the features of collaborative, open science. Open science promotes collaboration through the transparent dissemination of ideas, tools, and data, with the goal of accelerating the pace of discovery.
Although scientific conferences and workshops seem like a natural medium for brain researchers to meet and exchange ideas, in practice these events, often structured around the lecturer—audience paradigm, do not always provide sufficient flexibility or free time to fully exploit their potential. Rather than having a prearranged program, the content presented at unconferences is dynamically determined by attendees, while hackathons feature unstructured time during which teams of participants collaborate intensively on various projects.
These meeting formats have enabled rapid advances in computing technologies since the late s, but they have yet to be widely adopted in academic research. Now in their fourth year, international and regional Brainhack events bring together brain enthusiasts from a variety of backgrounds to build relationships, learn from one another, and collaborate on projects related to the neurosciences. Unlike traditional hackathons that tend to focus on computer programming, projects at Brainhacks can be completed using a much broader array of methods.

Two class action lawsuits were filed in Canada in against major tobacco companies; the cases were later combined. One class Blais involved Quebec residents with lung cancer, throat cancer, or emphysema. The other class Letourneau involved Quebec residents addicted to nicotine. After a lengthy trial, the court found that the tobacco companies caused injury, failed to inform customers of the risks and dangers of its products, and violated Quebec law.
In the Blais case, the court awarded moral damages e. In both cases the court awarded punitive damages, which it calculated based on one year of before-tax profits for each tobacco company.

High Speed Rail Canada founder Paul Langan lays out in a column a variety of issues, from safety concerns to secrecy around pricing and the number of stations. The proposed HFR project would include a new fleet of trains and dedicated tracks to increase reliability. The route would go from Toronto to Ottawa via Peterborough and Montreal to Quebec City via Trois Rivieres and the upgrade would take four years to complete.
According to an emailed statement from the Crown corporation, a trip from Montreal to Toronto on the proposed HFR service is estimated to take around four hours and 45 minutes — only 19 minutes faster than on a current train. And this is slower than in the s, Langan pointed out, when we had a turbo train that could make the trip in about four hours. However, for other parts of the route, such as Toronto-Ottawa and Montreal-Quebec, travel time would improve by more than an hour.
