Midwest's EnviroKleen® Receives Certification from Bureau de normalisation du Quebec

EnviroKleen meets BNQ's demanding environmental standards while also delivering outstanding performance over the longest period of time because of the patented chemistry of its synthetic fluid molecular structure and its unique binder system." About EnviroKleen EnviroKleen is chemically engineered with a synthetic fluid and a polymeric binder system that enables it to quickly penetrate and coat road surface materials, capture critical road materials called fines, and keep them locked into the surface so they cannot escape as dust. As fines are generated by new traffic, they too are captured and interlocked with the surface through both cohesive and adhesive mechanisms. It is this process of Fines Preservation that maintains road quality and eliminates dust for longer periods of time than other products. EnviroKleen also creates pavement-like strength that is actually enhanced by traffic. In addition to BNQ certification, EnviroKleen received the US Environmental Agency's ETV Certification in 2005 for dust suppressant products. It holds environmental and performance certification from Pennsylvania's State Conservation Commission's Center for Dirt and Gravel Road Studies and environmental certification from the State of Washington. EnviroKleen has been confirmed by Boeing-performed testing to have passed all requirements of Boeing Specification D6-17487, "Testing of Airplane Maintenance Materials".

Quebec says Canadian Pacific should help pay rail disaster costs

gallons (5.6 million liters) of oil. MMA filed for bankruptcy protection last week. Quebec said on Wednesday it had added Canadian Pacific to a legal list of companies it is ordering to help pay for the clean-up operation. A government statement said the Canadian Pacific was hired to transport the tanker cars of oil and had done a deal with MMA, which ran the rail line that passed through eastern Quebec. "Our duty is to do all we can to ensure that the firms responsible for this accident bear the costs linked to the clean-up and decontamination," Environment http://www.iamsport.org/pg/blog/deanwatz/read/17780085/connie-britton-has-the-friday-night-lights-movie-script Minister Yves-Francois Blanchet said in the statement.

Dan Delmar: Bursting the sovereigntists? economic bubble

The numbers just dont add up. According to a recent column by the Journal de Montreals Michel Girard , without federal transfer payments, an independent Quebec would be $19-billion in the red annually. No wonder Aussant couldnt find a good job in Quebec; few want to do business here Quebec is over-regulated, over-bureaucratized and fosters a climate that is not only unwelcoming to international business, but on occasion, downright hostile. Major retailers have been forced to take the Quebec government to court over the right to their brand names. A 17-year-old entrepreneur the very type of person an independent Quebec would desperately need was told by the language police that his companys name was too English-sounding.

CP Rail to appeal order to pay for Lac-Mégantic disaster cleanup

PHOTO L-3 MAS MIRABEL, Que.A pair of Quebec firms have been awarded a massive multi-year contract from the Department of National Defence (DND) for service of the federal Airbus CC-150 Polaris fleet. L-3 MAS and partner Avianor Inc. announced a new follow-on contract worth as much as $683-million to provide in-service support (ISS) for the Royal Canadian Air Force fleet of the converted civilian jets. We understand the strategic importance of the CC-150 fleets missions and are honored to again be selected by the Canadian government for this program, L-3 MAS vice-president and general manager Jacques Comtois said in a statement. L-3 MAS, a division of L-3 Integrated Systems Group, was awarded the CC-150 interim ISS contract in June 2012. The CC-150 Polaris fleet is used by the government for missions such http://www.picowiki.com/panccarlliges1979/index.php/Backstage With Taylor Swift on Her Huge Summer Stadium Tour as VIP transportation and strategic air-to-air refuelling, as well as passenger, freight and medical evacuation transportation. Headquartered in Mirabel, Que., L-3 MAS will act as prime contractor, providing program management, material management and engineering support services, as well as line maintenance support at Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Trenton, located approximately 175 kilometres east of Toronto, where the fleet is stationed.

Quebec firms awarded $683M defence department service contract

It's not optional," Quebec Environment Minister Yves-Francois Blanchet said in a statement e-mailed to Reuters. But Canadian Pacific, which transported the oil as far as Montreal before handing the cargo over to a smaller operator, had a different view. "As a matter of fact, and law, CP is not responsible for this clean-up. CP will be appealing," said spokesman Ed Greenberg. Quebec added CP, Canada's second largest rail company, to a legal list of companies it is ordering to help fund the clean-up and decontamination of Lac-Megantic. The train was operated by Montreal, Maine & Atlantic (MMA), which filed for bankruptcy protection last week.

Quebec says Canadian Pacific Railway should help pay disaster costs

But Yves-Francois Blanchet, Quebec minister of sustainable development, environment, wildlife and parks, said he wasnt giving the railway a choice. I leave it to [the] legal department, but let me be clear: [under the environmental quality act,] the minister doesnt just ask or suggest a way for the reparation or the payment; he gives a order. It is not an option, Mr. Blanchet said in an email. The exchange will likely lay the groundwork for a legal battle between CP Rail and the Quebec government as the various stakeholders involved in the Lac-Megantic disaster point fingers at each other about who is responsible for its cleanup. The Quebec government included CP Rail Wednesday on the list of companies it said it was targeting to help with the decontamination costs associated with the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway derailment on July 6 in Lac-Megantic in which 47 people are believed to have died after a runaway crude train crashed in the Quebec town.
